Control your to-do list Minority Report-style with Clear and the Leap Motion controller

clear

If you’ve never heard of the Leap Motion controller, it’s pretty similar to Microsoft’s Kinect. Only it’s smaller and much more accurate, making it a great device to use to augment the way you use your PC.

One great way to show off the Leap Motion is by demonstrating how it can make current programs even better and more intuitive. One such example is Realmac Software’s Clear for Mac, which they’ve been working to add support for the Leap Motion. They’ve released a video of how it works, and the results are pretty cool. Check it out!

The Leap Motion controller is expected to ship within a few months, and it’ll cost $69.99. You’ll also be able to navigate webpages, maps, photos, 3D software, games and more. Who knows, maybe it’ll even make Windows 8 more usable.

    Can you hook up multiples of the device? I’m thinking for gaming or for possible exercise ala Kinnect.

    [@Coyote] agreed- …I still don’t see how using more energy and exaggerated movements will improve over the keyboard/mouse. All these new touch/kinect/motion controlers are good for are gimicks and kiosk panels…
    (And some portable devices.)

    Watching the first 15 seconds of that video I almost got sick to my stomach. Is this the future? I hope not. Maybe using a wand would put it more in context?

    This looks neat and all but I still don’t see how using more energy and exaggerated movements will improve over the keyboard/mouse. All these new touch/kinect/motion controlers are good for are gimicks and kiosk panels.

    You think carpel tunnel is bad, wait till you have to put your arm in a sling because you got to excited playing angry birds.
