Introducing The Leap

The Leap is a small iPod sized USB peripheral that creates a 3D interaction space of 8 cubic feet to precisely interact with and control software on your laptop or desktop computer. It’s like being able to reach into the computer and pull out information as easily as reaching into a cookie jar. The Leap senses your individual hand and finger movements independently, as well as items like a pen. In fact, it’s 200x more sensitive than existing touch-free products and technologies. It’s the difference between sensing an arm swiping through the air and being able to create a precise digital signature with a fingertip or pen.

Watch how it works below:

I love living in the future omg

As much as I love the growth of technology and how brilliant iPads are ect, I find it a bit sad that schools are now introducing this technology into the classroom so heavily. A young girl on an interview just said how she loved ‘painting’ on the tablet. It’s sad to think unnecessary technology may kill off traditional media and learning for good. Just let her paint in actual paints for fuck sake. We risk creating a generation who are unable to do anything unless it’s on a screen in front of them and it’s not worth it.
