To get you started, the Leap Motion Controller comes with a free set of apps.


Product Features
  • Accurate, sub-millimetre hand tracking with near-zero latency

Tiny device. Huge possibilities.

The Leap Motion Controller is sleek, light, and small--just 3 inches long. It takes up hardly any room on your desk, but has a wide 150° field of view, and transforms the space above into a 3D interface for your hands. It works alongside your keyboard, mouse, stylus, or track-pad for a richer and more natural 3D computing experience. With the Leap Motion software running, just plug the device into the USB port on your Mac or PC, and you’re ready to start exploring.

The Leap Motion Controller uses infrared cameras and highly complex mathematical algorithms to translate hand and finger movements into 3D input. This unique approach allows Leap Motion technology to be significantly more accurate than other motion-control technologies--and it’s constantly improving. With free, automatic software updates, you can always have access to the latest features and enhancements.

Try Your Hand at Something New

Compose a tune or dissect a spider. Soar through the sky like a superhero or flip through slides with a flick of your wrist. Reach out and grab a virtual heart, or sculpt clay with your hands. With just a swipe of your finger or wave of your hand, you’re in control. Over 200 apps in the Leap Motion App Store means there’s always something new to discover.

With the introductory app shortcuts, your computer becomes a gesture-controlled digital command centre. Play your favourite music and videos, scroll through web pages and documents, or switch between apps with the wave of a hand--and with future upgrades and new features, this is only the beginning.

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 preordered this device a while back, based on the marketing and videos of the device, games: fruit ninja, angry birds, 3d drawing, windows 8, all controlled easily and effortlessly. When I first used it, it was anything but.

Note, I disliked the multiple delays in the preorder, first it was early April, then May, and now it is the end of July, when I finally received it. I tried to ignore all reviews and videos of the device before I laid hands on it to try and remain impartial and unbiased, I can see now it was a big mistake.

Opening the sturdy well designed and packaged box is akin to opening an Apple product, plain and simple and no loose ends. Plug it in and download a setup file, greeted with a control panel in the tray area, an introduction demo of 'what and where it sees' and an Airspace app launcher - similar to the App store in iTunes. However, that's where the similarities end.

Firstly, if a tiny speck of dust lands on the device, a notification appears, saying smudge detected. If you have overhead lighting or nearby lighting of any kind, the device switches to 'robust' mode, I think that means it is less accurate. They didn't tell us about that in the preview videos.

The Airspace app - a grid of rectangular icons; a few apps start downloading, and a link to more apps sends straight to the browser. How do you control the app? With the mouse of course, there is no leap functionality here. The in-browser store has only a few apps, some Windows or Mac only, some both. Some of the software is quite expensive, and it feels a bit like throwing good money after bad. The few games provided, e.g. Cut the rope is almost unplayable, it doesn't recognise the 'cut' very well at all as you swipe across the rope.

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.

I have been watching this product for a long time. Amazon had a sale on so i decided to take the plunge and buy one. From the early reviews people had they were all saying there isn't much to do on the leap motion. This is still true. The number of apps is limited and 90% of them you have to pay for. Theres new software coming out for the leap motion which greatly improves its tracking. Hopefully this will make it more fun to use. The tracking at the moment has its ups and downs.It will either work or it wont. The setup is straight forward and easy to follow. If you've been thinking about getting one I would wait for the new software to launch and then check peoples reviews. I also would not pay full price for this product.
