Product description

Product description

The remarkably accurate, incredibly natural way to interact with your computer. The Leap Motion Controller is a tiny USB device that will change the way you use your computer - because you do everything without touching anything. It senses how you move your hands the way you move them naturally. It makes the space between you and your computer interactive and three-dimensional. So instead of clicks, taps, and drag-and-drops, you can point, reach, and grab - even pick something up and put it down. Just like in real life.It works with your Mac and PC and it's easy to set up. Just plug it into the USB port, download the free software, and you're off to a new dimension. The Leap Motion Controller is only 3 inches long, but it's remarkably powerful. It tracks all 10 fingers up to 1/100th of a millimeter with zero visible latency. Your hands are free to move in 8 cubic feet of interactive, 3D space. With the wave of a hand or lift of a finger, you can browse the web, read articles, listen to music, and more. But the best parts are the apps you'll discover in Airspace, the Leap Motion app store.Airspace is a whole new world of apps - many are designed specifically for Leap Motion technology. You'll find apps in all kinds of categories: Productivity, Music, Games, Design, Photography, and more. Create a work of art with your fingertip using Corel's Painter app. Steer a car with both hands in Disney Interactive's Wreck-It Ralph Sugar Rush Speedway. Point and play Double Fine's music game Dischord. Play ZeptoLab's Cut the Rope with a finger in the air. Follow the weather with The Weather Channel app. Airspace also includes plug-ins for 3D design software leader Autodesk as well as many others.

It might feel strange poking your index finger shakily in the direction of a screen, rather than touching it or using a mouse, but put in the practice and you'll soon be gesturing your way around Mountain Lion, Cut The Rope and the New York Times.

For the right users - everything from industrial design offices and DJ booths to operating theatres - it could be a real tech revolution.

At CES 2014, Leap’s CEO showed off the platform's second-gen gesture-tracking software. Its first big update, it focuses on allowing more natural gestures and can even track hands when its view of your fingertips is blocked. The update is yet to roll out, but it's far from the only feature coming soon to Leap Motion.

The tech has also been built into laptops such as HP’s Envy 17, further increasing the chance of it crossing over into the mainstream.

It's not there yet though. While cheap enough for the gamble and sci-fi enough to silence your mates, Leap Motion still has its limits as a works-every-time desk accessory.

Interesting technology and may yet become widespread, but this version isn't really there. It struggles with some form of lighting (e.g. typical office overhead strobe lights) and the range of software isn't the great. Newer, smaller versions of the Leap are now available and you'd be better off giving one of them a go.

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.

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

Too many times have products like these promised so much and delivered so little. I became very sceptical after reading mixed reviews at best, but I purchased one anyway because I'd been hugely excited about it months before the release. On relfection, I wish I hadn't bothered.

The cameras do pick up your hand movements, however only on their terms: you have to be the perfect distance away/above the device, you can't use it in the sun, and you definitely can't go back/forward without huge issues. I keep it with the hope/expectation that, through firmware upgrades and tracking apps it will improve, but at the moment, it's nothing more than a shiny paperweight.

A shame.

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 :-)
