Leap Motion is on its way.
With the clock ticking down to the PC gesture controller’s July 22 launch, Leap has a brand new teaser video that showcases the device’s interaction with Windows. If you’d forgotten how exciting Leap was when we first got the chance to play with it, this might be enough to get your blood pumping again.
The clip (which you can watch below) shows hand gestures replacing mouse pointer or multitouch in a variety of Windows apps. For all of the flak Microsoft has taken for Windows 8, Leap and Windows 8 look like a perfect match. All of that multitouch capability – a point of contention for many PC owners – fits like a glove with Leap gestures.
In case you somehow missed the Leap Motion bandwagon, we’re looking at a tiny gizmo that rests next to your PC (desktop or laptop). Think a pint-sized Kinect that allows you to control your computer with mid-air waves, points, and other sleights of hand. It’s extremely sensitive, letting the tiniest of movements register onscreen. Cue the inevitable Minority Report comparisons.
