Leap Motion - Gesture based interaction

Leap Motion - Gesture based interaction
Jun 15th, 2013

Leap Motion is an interesting take on an alternative input device.  It essentially enables gesture based interaction with your computer.  While I think there are a few more ergonomic issues to work out (ever play XBox Kinect for hours on end?) I think its a nice reminder that we are still exploring other ways to interface with devices of all types.  The mouse and keyboard may never die anytime soon, but we’ll have additional ways to interact with devices as this kind of technology advances.
