LEAP Brings Minority Report Style Gesture Controls to Your Mac [Video]

The Leap is a small iPod sized USB peripheral that creates a 3D interaction space of 8 cubic feet to precisely interact with and control software on your laptop or desktop computer.

Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. 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.

This isn't a game system that roughly maps your hand 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.

This is like day one of the mouse. Except, no one needs an instruction manual for their hands.


You can pre-order The LEAP for $69.99 at the link below. The company is also distributing thousands of kits free to developers who want to try to create some incredible things with the technology.

Check out the video below for demonstration of how it works...

On the LEAP website it mentions that their partners are companies with products such as phones, tablets, and computers. Who's to say that's not apple an they just don't want you to know. We all know how secretive apple is.

Apple dropped the ball, period. They should've never let this company introduce their product to the world. They should've bought it out long before and integrated it into the new iMacs and MacBooks. As well as apple tvs.

if you go visit their website it says it will be available for Mac, windows 7/8, and Linux. They will start shipping in December 2012 or January 2013

When apple wanted voice recognition they bought the brightest star who were furthest forward- nuance. But apple have not bought this company. This means apple is either further down the development line than this company, or it has dropped the ball and didn't even see this coming. It's clearly the best way to interact. My guess is- apple are so focused on touch technology and the endlessly disappointing siri they haven't even considered this seriously.
