A new way to use your computer.

Now you can use your hands to control your computer in a new and different way. Think of it like using a touch screen tablet, smart phone, without needing to touch the screen. Introducing the Leap Motion

There are tons of apps available for the Leap Motion for Mac, and Windows, and a linux port is being developed. You will find many apps under These categories.

  • Creative tools
  • Education
  • Experimental
  • Games
  • Music & Entertainment
  • Productivity & Utilities
  • Science

here are just a few.

Google Earth: A new unique way to interact with Planet Earth

 

Cyber Science:

Air Harp: Play a real sounding Harp

Geco: control midi devices.

At the moment the Leap Motion looks like it just controls applications specifically written for it. Who knows where it will end up. In the future perhaps it will be used to control the operating system much like a touch screen device.
