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 :-)

Got mine today and reading other review I thought the controller would be pretty basic almost prototype stage.
I've been using it a few hours now and I can say it's definitely fulfilled my best expectations for it.

I'm quite a big gadget freak and this is a must have for any sci-fi fanatic or for anyone who is bored of using conventional means of controlling a computer. The thing itself is rather small and very nicely made. You can clearly see when it's active or not as the laser transmitters glow a nice red and the rubber bottom helps to stop it sliding around so it can be easily put onto a laptop surface.

I did have a couple of glitches while installing, I'm on win7 and to start it didn't like the usb 3 port I gave it then was a bit iffy with finding the installation package downloaded off the website. So if you're technically handicapped you may find it a bit frustrating or confusing to start.

The laser mapping itself is rather large, which is good as it has very nice depth perception but can be a bit off when pointing/moving from one side to another and you may find yourself pointing well away from the screen to get to where you want to go (I recommend setting auto to the height mapping, then it'll adjust to keep you pointing correctly)

I think they have released a fair few updates for it as I find it very responsive and accurate but in terms of mapping how many fingers you're holding up (which is used to select things) it will misjudge but it's not too bad.

There's a store with a load of paid and a few free apps, the best I've found being "Touchless" this allows you to actually control the desktop and everything else (except steam) with the leap. It's very handy.

I've owned a Leap Motion controller since last Christmas, and have had a lot of time to try it out on my old laptop and gaming computer. I must say, I'm very confused with all of the bad reviews on here.

EDIT: I just updated to Version 2 (software update), and it's twice as good. It's a lot more accurate, more apps for it, generally more awesome. Definitely better than it was before, although even Version 1 isn't that bad. Old review:

Many people complain it doesn't work in 'normal' conditions. Mine however, works perfect, in all types of light (although I will admit it appears to work slightly better in darker conditions). Those of you having problems with it jittering about, it could just be your computer. I found this worked pretty pathetically on my laptop, but it works fine on my newer computer.

The built in app for controlling your computer is Touchless, which I found to be rather effective on my laptop, with a smaller display, but not so much on my computer, which has a ~25" display. I would highly recommend an app called Pointable, available for just £3.50 last time I checked, on the Airspace Store.

I'll admit, I find it easier to use the traditional mouse setup, since that's what I've grown up with, it's what we're all used to. People saying it's too hard to master, confusing, not practical - these are all things that were said about the mouse when it first came out.

At just £65, I think this is a good price for a good product. After using it for almost a year, I can confirm you do get used to it. My mouse actually broke on me for about a week, and I'll admit the Leap Motion was a pretty decent replacement for the time - but I wouldn't try and use it for gaming (well, I have tried it, and it wasn't nearly as fun as playing with a mouse, simply because most games aren't optimized for this technology).

It works well, it's accurate and it has a large space for you to interact with, the problem is what software to use it with, I'd use it more if there was stuff for it but ultimately most apps are third party and charge you to get them, whilst the apps generally work pretty well they don't really have a proper use. I was planning on using the controller as a mouse replacement on my laptop. and whilst touchless is good, it's too flawed to use as a mouse properly.

Really it's a cool, impressive product, but in the end you don't really use it, it's just a cool thing you can toy around with and show people
