Anyone here who knows anything at all about me will know that I am somewhat of a gadget freak so the Leap Motion was always going to like bling to a magpie for me!
What is Leap Motion? Well it's a control mechanism for your computer (no, not iDevices!) which should (eventually) free you from your mouse and other input devices. It allows you to manipulate what is on screen with hand gestures......just like you can manipulate the guy who cut in front of you on your commute to work with similar but less graceful hand gestures!
This video from T3 will give you a taste of what it can do
Currently the list of apps in the Leap Motion App Store is limited but it's new on the market so it isn't really a surprise. If the Leap Motion takes off you can expect to see the range of apps grow exponentially.
So, am I buying one? Well I have absolutely no need for this particular gadget at all which means yes, in all probability I'll send (the incredibly cheap price of) £70ish in beer tokens to Leap Motion so that I can add my support, as the old saying goes "use it or lose it"!
