One Step Closer to the Minority Report with ASUS’ Leap Motion
Sci-fi fans and ergonomics devotees alike can rejoice as ASUS unveils Leap Motion, a new input device designed for use with Windows 8 and OS X, with support for smartphones and tablets soon to follow. Consisting of a simple rounded black box, the controller tracks in-air movement to within 1/100th of a millimeter by creating a 3D space of 8 cubic feet. This space in turn is recreated on the computer and tracks movement from not only hands, but also pens and other objects. Leap Motion has announced that the controller will be bundled with ASUS computers including all-in-ones and laptops. For those interested in knowing more about the new technology, check it out here.
