It’s funny how many times I’ve heard people comparing Leap Motion and Minority Report. The movie showed those fancy “air screens” where Tom Cruise would navigate through photos and video using special gloves that would detect his finger move and click.

The key thing now is, contrary to the movie, the Leap Motion Controller won’t need those special gloves in order to work. It’s just a small device in front of your computer that completely recognizes your hands, fingers and movement with an unimaginable accuracy.

I’m a witness myself: I played Fruit Ninja using a chopstick at SXSW 2013, and I recently found a video about someone playing Fruit Ninja with a knife. Cool.

Here an interesting article from Forbes when they, again, compare Leap Motion with Minority Report.
