This project keeps getting more interesting. Leap Motion, the motion technology used for video games and more, has moved to the next phase of development.
Leap Motion tracks your hand motions and replicates that motion on the screen. The latest version of the program now tracks joints and bones in users' fingers. That will make movements more natural and more interactive.
Our vision has always been to let people do more with technology – so we can reach into the screen and interact with applications on our devices in the same way we interact with the physical world every day.
This means taking things like sculpting a lump of clay, snapping together building blocks, or learning to play an instrument – the types of actions 99% of people just won’t or can’t do on a computer with traditional input devices – and making them possible and instantly accessible to anyone who knows how to do them with their physical hands in the real world.
Leap Motion is making this technology available for developers - so who know what great things will come out of this.
