The Leap!!!? This is the coolest computer advancement yet...ever.

You've seen Iron Man's Tony Stark control his computer graphics with his hands, right? Well that nifty little trick is coming to a screen near you, maybe even your desk, laptop...It's called the Leap, and it only costs $70.

Using a Leap is easy.  A swipe in the air leads to a swipe of the page.  So that nice LED display remains clean and untouched. Setup is just as intuitive.  Plug the LEAP into a USB port.  Load the Leap Motion software. Do a quick wave to calibrate. That’s it.

In minutes, you’ll be able to interact with your desktop using natural hand and finger movements. Able to distinguish thumbs from fingers, and even handheld items like pencils.  This allows users to interact like never before, using only natural movements. And we went a step further. You will be able to create custom gestures that fit how you want to use your computer. 


  1. Try doing that for 3 hours with a desk top.

  2. Actually, that's what I had in mind. I guess it's one of those things you'll either hate or love, depending on arm strength.
