Leap Motion: Changing the Way We Interact with Computers?

I wanted to share a new gesture-controlled system that I read about called Leap Motion.

I believe the creators have designed something that could change our interaction with computers on many educational and occupational levels. Here are a few statements from their website:
  • For the first time, you can control your computer in three dimensions using just your hand and finger movements and Leap Motion enabled software.
  • The possibilities are endless, really. Art. Healthcare. Engineering. Gaming.
  • Set down that stylus. The Leap Motion controller lets you create onscreen artwork, including 3D images, without any other devices.
  • Interacting with 3D modeling software has never been easier or more intuitive.
  • Whether you're on a Mac or PC, now you can click, grab, scroll and pinch, using only your hands.
  • Sign on the dotted line without ink or paper. Just point your pen and sign your name in the air.
  • Gaming addiction? With the Leap Motion controller, now you can crush the enemy with your bare hands.
  • Surgeons, leave your gloves on. The Leap Motion controller lets you control 3D medical data onscreen with a wave of your hand.
  • The Leap Motion works on Windows Vista/7/8 and Mac OS X, with Linux being on the agenda.
I also believe that Leap Motion can have a significant impact on any student or individual that needs assistance with the development of fine motor skills.
