Do you know the Leap? No?
Okay, the Leap is, on a superficial level, a tiny thing that makes magic.
In a more specific way, it’s a device that recognizes your finger movement. And if you think now “Wait, I know that… It’s one of these things connected to a game console!”, than you’re absolutely wrong.
It’s a device that creates a 3D interaction space of 8 cubic feet to precisely interact with and control software on your laptop or desktop computer.
The Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.
This isn’t a game system that roughly maps your hand movements. The Leap technology is 200 times more accurate than anything else on the market — at any price point. Just about the size of a flash drive, the Leap can distinguish your individual fingers and track your movements down to a 1/100th of a millimeter.
The Leap is able to distinguish thumbs from fingers, and even handheld items like pencils. This allows you to interact like never before, using only natural movements.

I’ve just pre-ordered mine and I’m very excited to get it in a few months.
