Have you seen Leap? It's insane. Get ready to forget about pathetic touchscreens and tablets - they are rubbish and already obsolete.

Check the video out: http://www.technologyrevi...chnology-since-the-smart/

Okay, maybe not quite Minority Report because we still need the holographic screens - but Leap's sensitivity is already more advanced.

Incredible.

What the.... This is so incredible that I'm still having a hard time believing that it's not an April's fools joke!
I'm curious if turning this on its side so it's facing a desk would allow it to recognize writtings in a paper sheet.
Also, I'd love to know what's the technology behind it!

[edit]
re:technology: looks like it's infrared. So, it's basically a more precise Kinect with a shorter range (8cubic feet, roughly a cube with 6cm on each side).
seems cool smiley
