Windows 8 brought to the table a new approach to computers, wanting to suggest the touch-screen environment in desktops and laptops. From that perspective, Leap Motion solves two issues in one: it allows users with non-touch-screen computers to interact in a similar way, and it also adds more value to those interactions, like expanding functionality of traditional peripherals like keyboard and mouse. 

Here’s a rough demonstration from a developer who used his kit to test Windows 8 with Leap Motion and help us get an idea on how it works. Once you see the video, you’ll understand why I refer to it as “rough”, but I’m hoping we’ll soon have tons of better samples once consumer kits are finally delivered next month.
