3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Technology 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
I purchased the Leap Motion Controller after seeing one used for an interactive display in China.

I knew that I was buying it more from curiosity than for a genuine practical application and at the moment, I would suggest that that is the way in which it should be viewed.

As an old bloke with a depressingly long history with technology I can remember when the first mouse was launched; YUP there was life before the Mouse. Many of the criticisms that you will read in some of the reviews for the Leap Motion Controller were uttered about the Mouse when it was first launched, except of course in those days the interweb had not been invented so you would only hear the comments in bars and pubs...remember those funny old days when we used to share our opinions face to face?

So my overall summary is:

1) Cute technology that is still to some extent looking for a purpose if you are buying it for personal use.
2) Yes it does require you to hone your motor skills, so if you lack patience then look elsewhere, but then you are unlikely to be an early adopter anyway
3) If you buy it, stick with it

Why 3 Stars? Well 5 Stars for the build quality and technology etc. but until its real purpose bursts forth it can only be 3 stars.

But three stars that are great fun :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars A solution in search of a worthy problem 1 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
This is an amazing piece of technology and it is priced right. What it needs now is both a killer app that needs it or a really good interface software that makes it easier to use existing 3D apps. I don't use Maya so have no idea how successful that is, but it looks great. So far, it's full of promise, I wonder what it will deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars as expected 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Arrived well packed and on time and it does what is expected of it. I would purchase another if needed but the software designers are a bit too keen on games rather than serious applications

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work like i would want it to. 9 Aug 2013
By Roderik
Verified Purchase
I received this controller a few days ago and since then have been playing around with it. My observations:
- controlling your computer with the leap motion is troublesome with alot of unresponsiveness
- the controller is influenced by everything, and has issues with sunlight, lamps etc.
- the apps that are availble are fine, if the airspace app works, but controlling them is far from natural.

I was really disappointed, as i had been looking forward to this product for a while. I have just returned it and would rather spend my money on other items.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice toy. 16 Jan 2014
By S. GU
Verified Purchase
If you wanna use it as a toy, just buy without thinking the price. If you like it as some useful tool such as a replacement of mouse/keyboard then forget it completely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
It was a fun gadget at first but I reach the standard limits pretty quickly.
Probably need to spend more time of configuration it for my own needs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of hype 10 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Not a lot of real world application for it though.

I'm open to suggestions but a bit of a gimmick at the moment.

It's cool, but doesn't have free applications enough to enjoy it. You can count the free applications by your hands, but i think, it is a matter of time...

Worst piece of tech I have seen in my life. It works but you'll probably use it once and get rid of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not accurate / reliable enough to use.
Fun for a few minutes to play with the tech but not really an option. Had hoped to develop games for it however it's so unreliable that it's just not worth the investment.
