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!
