I have to admit I’ve fallen in love with this device since I saw the Leap Motion Controller at SXSW last week. Basically, it’s a small peripheral that allows users to interact with their computers by just moving hands in the air.

What does the Leap Motion do?

Well, at this moment it seems like it can do everything: the company claims the device will help you play games, control programs and even paint with your fingertips. Although originally it was mentioned it would be a substitute for a keyboard and mouse, lately the focus has been oriented in promoting it as an additional tool to help increase productivity: faster moves, easier navigation.

At this moment, there areĀ only a few apps we’re aware of, some of them used as a demo of the product during SXSW 2013.

For more info about the product, you can visit the Leap Motion website, where you’ll also be able to pre-order one for $79.99 (plus tax & shipping).
