Control your desktop with a wave of your hand
Speaker: Imagine controlling your computer with a wag of your finger.
Leap motion is making it happen.
Speaker: The goal is to fundamentally transform how people interact with computers and to do so in the same way does the mouse do.
Here, you're seeing my finger tip and this is sorta the direction of my finger.
This is sorta the passage tracing out and of course everything is in full 3D so you can see we're tracking that too.
We're not just tracking the finger tips, we're also tracking the entire hands.
So here is my entire hand.
You can see very small motions of my finger tips is very easy to pick up.
Of course, you can do more than one hand.
We can do other objects, there is like my arm or you know, here is a chop stick right here.
Subtle motions are immediately hurrying on the screen so that there's no distance between sorta thought and response.
This is social networking data so you see off of that little connections between the people with little triangles and sort of what's going on here and generally, something like this will be very complicated to visualize and very difficult to interact and here we're interacting sort of a physical thing.
Maps just got a lot a more interesting.
We have way more access, actually, probably necessary for pinch to zoom but you got a really good response sorta touch like feeling and I kind zoom in and I can go up and down, I go left and right but I can also, of course, all of these things simultaneously.
Speaker: In San Francisco.
