Leap Motion: Replacement for Touch-Screens?

Now that many computers and hybrid laptops are incorporating touch-screens, what’s next? Gesture technology!

The Leap Motion Controller works by connecting to any PC or Mac through a USB port and it can simply be placed in front of your computer. You can control your computer with hand and finger movements without ever having to touch the screen. It uses technology similar to the Microsoft Kinect, except Leap Motion can detect small, precise movements for added accuracy. You can also download compatible apps from Leap Motion’s Airspace store.

With this new technology we are sure that “gesture” technology may soon bring many other applications to the marketplace. What do you think? Would you use it?
