Space-Responsive Gadgets
Leap Motion Transforms Workspaces Into Intuitive Touchpads

Leap Motion is taking Apple’s ubiquitous gestures to new heights by turning your living space into the touch pad itself. Similar to the Xbox’s Kinect, the developers have created a 3D motion controller that allows users to operate their computers with intuitive hand gestures—with 200 times more precision than Kinect.

The USB peripheral alters an 8 cubic-foot space into a fully responsive keyboard and hands-free mouse. The device appears to a number of consumers ranging from avid gamers to zealous graphic designers. It allows presenters to zoom and create demonstrations that rival the powers of Prezi and 3D-rendering software. It will also revolutionize the gaming industry by continuing to replace physical devices in favor of hand motions.

Leap Motion has already begun taking pre-orders for the gadget. At a reasonable price of $70, this may be the next must-have tech accessory.
