This video has been embedded in several techie blogs and surrounded by words that practically proclaim it as the next big thing. I would so love it to be!
The product is Leap, a gesture-based module for controlling whatever happens on a screen. It is touted to have no noticeable lag, detect fine motion, and is able to register all ten fingers or even a pencil tip.
While the Kinect offers coarse gesture control (you flap your arms and legs), the Leap offers fine control. This is a marked refinement in this form of human-computer interaction.
All Leap needs now is to be integrated into computers and gaming consoles. If that happens, the Minority Report style of interaction will leap off the screen and become a distinct reality.
