Leap Motion… “The remarkably accurate, incredibly natural way to interact with your computer.”
A brand new motion controller interface is here and still in development from a company called Leap Motion. The product which has the same name of the company will be shipped in may and after playing around with the developers kit this new device is ready for production but the question is what will this device be used for.
This device will make a major impact on the way people interact with content they see on a computer screen and based on devices like the Microsoft’s motion controller kinect for the Xbox 360 which gives the user the capability to navigate but interact with games that are kinect ready. Based on my experience playing around with both devices the leap motion is 10 times accurate than the kinect sensor and since the leap motion is just a hand gesture device it’s great for artist, education and medical professionals that allows people who are using software related to these industries to interact with software that will give the users more flexibility in terms of human interaction with the computer.
For all the new startups that want to come up with cool ideas that launch a start just check this device and be among the most innovative startup by completely changing the way people work, play and learn. Selling your apps on Airspace which is a app store for leap motion but this store will be release the same time as the devices launch.
