A giant Leap for computer users

Posted on: June 15, 2013

Today I preordered Leap: a new motion control device which is capable of replacing a mouse if you use a Windows OS on your computer.
For those familiar with sound art, motion controllers to trigger computer interactions are nothing new. In fact, I own several Eowave devices, such as the Eobody2 to trigger and control VSTi’s on my computer using MIDI and hand motions:

But the Leap motion controller extends this concept to PC applications in general. The Leap software is not only capable of recognizing movement on 2D surfaces, but also in 3D. This means it enables you to model 3D objects on your computer using your fingers…

This is the stuff of science fiction movies of the past, like Bladerunner or 2001: A Space Odyssee! Leaf will be delivered to buyers in July.

I can’t wait to get my hands on it..
