The time has finally come to control computers just like Tony Stark from Iron Man. For ~$70, “The Leap” is a mouse, keyboard, and touchscreen all-in-one.
From the Leap website:
“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.”
I imagine the software will lag behind the hardware (i.e. kinect), but it will catch up eventually, and we’ll have some very cool applications for this — Iron Man-esque design, gaming, sculpture, robotics, surgery, and more.
