Leap Motion – a replacement for keyboards and mice?

Read this post on GigaOm then watch this video.

If you don’t want to read the entire post at least read the paragraph below. Then watch the video.

The company, which was founded in 2010 has built a peripheral device that you plug into a computer or laptop that can enable a gesture-based user interface that incorporates all directions — not just a flat perspective. Some have described it as a Kinect for computers. The device has a 150-degree field of view and can accurately track the movements of all 10 fingers down to the 1/100th of a millimeter, which is apparently pretty darn impressive according to reviewers.

How cool is that!

Not sure if it is something the library could use soon but it is a very interesting bit of technology to keep an eye on.
