A Leap into the future

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

Yayyyy! The future of interacting with my Mac is here; the Leap Motion Controller gives me a ‘Minority Report‘-like experience, w00t!!

I pre-ordered the Leap Motion Controller months ago, and it arrived yesterday after its international release on July 22. the device is *really* small, has a nice ‘Apple’ inspired packaging and design, as you can see in the geeky unpacking photos below.

My first impression; grrrrrrooovy! It will take some time to get used to the amazing sensitivity and accuracy and yes, I did accidentally close a browser window while trying to click on a link which showed me that I have to be careful; accidentally deleting files or unfriending a Facebook friend could happen these first days… 😉 So, not completely ready for productive computing yet, but that should come when I am more used to it and the OS and programs are ‘Leap-aware’!

Steve Jobs: “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
