i’m tellin yall… The Matrix is lurkin – Leap Motion Introduces Accurate Motion Control Technology

Motion control has proved decisive in deciding the victor of the current, and next generation of video game consoles. The current standard for using gestures as the controller, is set by the Kinect from Microsoft, but Leap Motion thinks their new device called the Leap will soon be the new standard — and the standard for many other devices as well. Designed to fully integrate with tablets, smart phones, laptops and game systems, Leap is allegedly 200 times more accurate than the existing technologies and it is all packed into a device the size of a stick of gum which plugs into your computer’s USB port. Leap simultaneously tracks the movements from all ten of your fingers, allowing for a wide array of highly accurate movement readings within 1/100 of a millimeter. In addition to acting as a controlling device for any compatible user experience, Leap can also be used to chain devices together to create a larger workspace — probably not unlike something seen in the office of Tony Stark. Leap is expected to be available in very limited quantities (first by means of a pre-order here) for around $70 USD, with a full release planned by the end of the year.
