People are always coming up with new ways to control technology. From the basics like a solo keyboard or with a mouse, to Microsoft’s XBox Kinect with voice and motion control, to Apple’s iPhone and iPad finger controls, we have many different ways to interact.
A new product that has come out, called Leap, offers a brand new way to interact.
While the idea is not revolutionary, this version of motion controls has its benefits.
Here is how they describe it:
It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements… The Leap technology is 200 times more accurate than anything else on the market — at any price point. Just about the size of a flash drive, the Leap can distinguish your individual fingers and track your movements down to a 1/100th of a millimeter.
Do you think this will catch on or just be a fad?
