Leap Motion Brings Mouseless Minority Report Like Controls To You Computer

If you ever wanted to control your PC with a simple hand move, just like Tom Cruise did in his famous Minority Report movie, now it’s the right time to get started! While you’d probably still have to wait a bit for the massive 3D hologram screens they used in the movie, the hands PC control part it’s available for purchase in the form a small stylish receiver box called Leap Motion.

The Leap Motion is a plug-and-play device compatible with Windows 7/8 and Mac OS X 10.7 or latter and allows you to control dedicated software via hand movements. Simply plug in the device, place it in front of your keyboard so it can “sense” all your hands moves and you’re ready to roll. The Leap Motion detects a large variety of motions such hand writing and drawing, pinch moves, 360 degrees rotations, 3 axis (up/down/back/forth) moves allowing you to point, wave, reach, grab, pick and drop something, write messages and so on … Pretty impressive!

ALSO CHECK the AirType The Keyboardless Keyboard and the Star Wars R2D2 Virtual Keyboard we featured earlier.

The Leap Motion Controller works on dedicated software which can be downloaded from the Leap Motion App Store (there are 221 free and paid apps and games available at the time this article was published). It might not sound like a lot if you compare it with Apple’s Apps Store, but it’s still a good number of apps covering most needs and, given the strong community of developers behind the Leap Motion Controller, things can only get better! Check out the video to see the Leap motion Controller in action …

evoMouse - The Virtual Mouse That Changes Any Surface Into A Trackpad
Here’s what I call technology advancement! The PC mouse is the same since it’s invention. Well, there are some technical improvements like wireless technology, laser, multiple buttons, 4 direction scroll wheels, but nothing radical.

Here’s where the evoMouse comes to claim it’s place on the PC Mouse Evolution grid!

Just as the CTX virtual keyboard we discovered earlier turns any flat surface into a laser keyboard, the evoMouse allows you to use almost any surface as a touchpad. The evoMouse connects to your PC via USB (I wish it worked via Bluetooth … ), recognizes your hands movement on the surface before it’s sensor and translate them into mouse movement. You can scroll, left and right click, pinch zoom, drag and drop, basically all the tasks you can achieve with a regular mouse.
