Is Leap Motion The Future Of Computer Interaction?

Tech companies are racing to revolutionize how people interact with their computers- and Leap Motion might have just beat them all to it. Claiming to “be more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen,” the company unveiled their Leap  motion capture system last week.

It looks like a Kinect on steroids. The device seems similar to the Touché device that Disney unveiled a few weeks ago. Only the size of a USB, the Leap claims to be “200 times more accurate” than current technology. Many are skeptical about the claims of this unreleased product, and details on the technical specifications are few (the company cites intellectual property concerns as many patents are pending).

However, Michael Gorman at Engadget tested the device first hand, and called its performance “impressive.”

What do you think? Will we all be waving at our computers through a Leap soon?
