A newly revealed company called Leap Motion has just announced plans to release a hardware add-on for the PC and Mac that it claims will change the way we interact with our desktops and laptops. It’s a motion sensing interface device that the company claims is “200 times more accurate than anything else on the market.” That is a rather big salvo against Microsoft, which has already launched the Kinect for Windows add-on.
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.
