leap-motion-technology-gesture-controlled-gadget-3-14-2013

Turns out that 2013 is, indeed, a Leap Year. Leap Motion Inc set tech blogs and geeks ablaze this month with the announcement of pre-orders for their Leap Motion device to be released on May 19.

Leap Motion, the company that makes the hotly anticipated gesture control device of the same name, announced in Feburary that the first Leap Motion units would ship to those who pre-order around the world on May 13, and that everyone could get their hands (and fingers) on one on May 19.

Leap Motion Inc’s technology will be the ground breaking release of this century turning any desktop, and even laptop, into technology with the next level of user interface, motion control. The device, hardly bigger than the palm of your hand, attaches to any Apple or PC screen and  senses your hands and fingers following their every move. It lets them move in all that wide-open space between you and your computer. So you can do everything without touching anything. It’s the tiny device that will change the way you use technology.
