From transcendent Star Trek holosuites to mind-blowing Minority Report graphics, our vision for computers has enticed and intrigued us for decades, but ultimately the reality has fallen short. But the folks at Leap are about to bring a magnificent change to that. For 4 years, they’ve been obsessed with one question: how can we interact with computers in a better, more natural way? After many sleepless nights, they’ve found the answer: the Leap ‘Motion’ controller. Now it’s time to have fun.
The original inspiration behind Leap ‘Motion’ came from frustration with 3D modeling. Molding clay took 10 seconds in real life but 30 minutes with a computer. The mouse and keyboard were simply getting in the way. Since available technology couldn’t solve the problems, the peeps at Leap created the Leap ‘Motion’ controller. With the Leap ‘Motion’ controller, 3D gesture control has finally made it out of the lab and into real life. Typing? Seriously? That’s fine for writing a novel. But it’s hardly the most natural, intuitive way to communicate. The ability to control any application with nuanced hand and finger movements is already transforming the way we interact with computers. And with the creation of the Leap ‘Motion’ controller, they’re just getting started over at Leap in shaping the future. Sounds exciting ? You can pre-order it at www.leapmotion.com
