  1. this technology might be good for handless disabled people. for those of us with thumbs and other fingers…maybe a step backwards?

  2. You might be missing the point. Connecting some parameter control to physical gestures is what hardware faders and knobs were designed to do– and they do it well.

    A GUI with pictures of knobs or sliders that you click-and-drag are a step backward.

    Whether you are smudging up a featureless glass screen, or waving your hands around in 3D space, you still don’t have tactile feedback. you have to rely on your eyes and ears to know what you are doing. At least with the Leap Motion, you don’t have to put your hand over your display in order to use it.

    All that said, my Leap Motion is scheduled to arrive in mid-May.

  3. this has happened before — now it is just higer resolution –

    — how many people are really making money – ??
    waving their hands around infront of a screen ?
