LeapMotion inbound…

July 24, 2013 1 comment

So this post might seem a bit late, and maybe it is if you have been following the social media wave. But I was just thinking about it again today whilst still waiting for mine. And after I saw a tweet from someone returning his already.

What I’m talking about is this really small and excitingly interesting little gadget called the LeapMotion. The LeapMotion is basically an input device for your computer. And that means it allows you to interact with your computer in a new and exciting way. Up until today you were able to use a keyboard for typing, mouse for interacting, Track balls, touch pads, gamepads, Kinect and some of you might still remember the big fad with VR (Virtual Reality) some time ago. Now the LeapMotion is just such a device. But it creates a 3D space around it and using your hands in mid air, you interact with your computer.

As soon as I got wind of this great new toy I had to place an order and I still remember rushing to the site and making sure I get my details in as quickly as possible. And Monday was the official, delayed, launch day. although I saw loads of tweets about people already receiving their pre-orders over the weekend.

So here I am, anxiously awaiting the delivery of my LeapMotion so I can have some fun with it. This has definitely been one of my most anticipated devices in years and I know it wont disappoint. Once I have my grubby little fingers on it I’ll post some more stuff around it.
