Have you seen the staggering tech behind the Leap yet?
In less than a week, a video introducing the 'Leap' has received a staggering 3.6 million+ YouTube views. Let's show you why.
Apparently it's more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen and offers a new way to interact with computers.
Having been uploaded by Leap Motion earlier this week, the clip 'Introducing the Leap' has become a huge viral hit, as it showcases incredibly innovative desktop interaction.
By simply using your hands and fingers, the Leap will recognise your gestures and allow to do everything from shooting guns in video games to playing Angry Birds with a set of chop sticks. Best of all, unlike the Kinect, this actually looks seamless and worthy of the hype.
Aside from the rave reviews it's receiving in the press, the likes of Wired have also been won over by the promise of Leap. "We were somewhat surprised to discover the Leap is everything portrayed in the Leap Motion video," wrote Wired, later adding: “In person, the pre-production version of the Leap is as impressive as the demo video."
With a slated price point of $70, would you put down the keyboard and mouse to take a leap of faith on this gesture-based innovation? We're certainly intrigued.
