[EG] Leap Motion Review - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I don't expect it to be flawless, it's basically a beta test product.

I am interested in what reviewers think of the potential of the sensor. AFAIK it is just CMOS cameras with infrared LEDs, according to Sparkfun's teardown (https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/leap-motion-teardown).

I still may get it one day, just when I have money laying around.

It was never on kickstarter, guys.

I get it's still being improved, but it doesn't really matter how much they polish it or perfect it...the conclusion will remain the same:
Quote:
While it provides a new means for computational control unlike anything else we've seen, it's clear that it's not cut out to replace a touchscreen or mouse as a primary input device. Not yet, anyway. Some developer may well figure out a way to take full advantage of the Leap's capabilities with a novel UI, but for now, it's best suited for creative pursuits, not productivity.

I could see games that are made specifically for Leapmotion working well (like Kinect exclusives), but for all applications/games that already exist it's simply never going to replace keyboard+mouse.

And I didn't really expect to, it's a niche product aimed at a niche audience, which I'm cool with.
