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.

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.

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

I’d long been tempted to try out the Leap Motion controller, out of curiosity. Recently, Amazon UK had a one-day sale, dropping the price from £70 to £43 (it’s currently selling for £50, so that price drop seems to have been just a small reduction on the new, lower price). I like the idea of being able to control a computer in different ways, and, while I’m not always a fan of gestures, I can see how using it for occasional gestures could be useful. I was particularly thinking about using it to control iTunes – play, pause, change volume – and to use with Dragon Dictate, when I dictate texts, to control the microphone.

The Leap Motion Controller is an attractive device, with a good idea behind it, but, alas, it fails miserably in normal conditions. You see, it doesn’t like light; it uses two cameras and an infrared sensor to detect motion, and light – particularly infrared light, such as produced by the sun – prevent it from working.

To start with, when you take it out of the box, then set it up, you’re pretty much on your own. After launch, a full-screen window opens with Airspace, where you can download a few apps, and try out Orientation, which seems to be something that shows how the device tracks your movements. All I got was a stuttery video that didn’t detect any movement at all, and just played annoyingly loud music. There’s no help about how to actually use the device.

There’s a video on the Leap website that shows you how to unbox it, connect it, and place it next to a computer, as well as a few videos that show you basics, but nothing more. To actually use it to control your computer, you have to search to find which apps can help.
