Leap Motion – Amazing gesture movement detection

Leap Motion

Today I came across a new device which takes the concept of the Microsoft Kinect to the next level. It is called the Leap and it has been developed by a San Francisco company called Leap Motion. It works in a similar way to the Kinect, but it is a lot more acurate, allowing you to interact with your computer using individual finger movements. They claim it is “200 times more accurate than anything else on the market” and it can “track your movements down to a 1/100th of a millimeter”. That seriously impressive stuff! Plus, it maps everything in 3D space and the device itself is only the size of a small iPod and plugs into any USB port.
