Introducing the Leap Motion Sensor

APPLE TECH: The Leap Motion Sensor

There’s something very satisfying about touchscreen technology. I suppose it’s that you are the input as oppose to a keyboard or keypad. Using natural hand movements and gestures in just intuitive. If you are used to using a phone with a touchscreen, try playing on one that is not ‘touch’ and see how frustrating it is.

Desktop PCs are starting to take the leap forward toward becoming fully touchable too. Techsperts at Apple have developed the Leap Motion Sensor, which takes things even further than touch. Rather, the Leap makes your Apple fully responsive to nature hand motions and gestures without the need the leave grubby fingerprints on your screen.

Here’s the Leap Motion Sensor splurb off YouTube:

“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.”

The Leap Motion Sensor is scheduled to be released next year for just $70 and can be pre-ordered at Leap Motion.
