The Future of Motion-Controls with the Leap! Gesture-Powered Fruit Ninja, Angry Birds and HALF LIFE 2?!
Wednesday, July 18th, 2012
Leap Motion's been hard at work for the last five years on the "Leap," a tiny peripheral coming this winter to PC and Mac. Is it a Kinect killer? Is the future here?
Motion controls have been around for a couple years, and gamers have mostly written them off as silly gimmicks. The Leap, on the other hand, with the ability to sense 3D objects, and turn all ten of your fingers into a separate mouse-cursor, shows a lot of promise. Honestly, this thing makes Minority Report look dated.
