Leap Motion, a San Francisco startup has created a device (“the Leap”) that lets you control your computer just my moving your fingers over it, as if you were using a touchscreen in the air.
Leap Motion is now taking pre-orders for the $69.99 device but won’t begin shipping it until the end of this year or early 2013. The company is also opening up its developer ecosystem to give software makers a head start on developing new applications.
How is this only $70? However much it costs, I need it. I’ve definitely done that thing where I reach up to Google Maps on my laptop and try to zoom in with the flick-open hand gesture that works on my phone.
