Those who wish for a touch-screen computer similar to a smart phone or tablet need to look no further than the Leap Motion Controller, the world’s most powerful and sensitive 3D motion controller. By using their hands, users can operate a computer with the controller set in front of them with just a swipe up, down or around. As the company explains, “Leap Motion tracks the movement of both hands (all 10 fingers), with up to 1/100th mm accuracy and no visible latency” meaning that no matter what you do with your hands, your computer will follow.
