Leap Motion – Minority Report computing is a reality

It’s no secret that I am a lover of tech. Today I got a Leap Motion – “3D Motion Controller”. Basically, it’s a small sensor that projects a field. That field can detect motion, distance and the number fingers that are in the field. The end result is ability for you to interact with your computer in an all new way. After 10 minutes of use, I felt like I was Tom Cruise in Minority Report, or Tony Stark in Iron Man 2. I shot some videos with my Google Glass – which only made the experience seem more futuristic.

My son, Jackson, will never know a world without this type of interface. That blows me away even more then the device. Where are we going to be in 20 years? Amazing to think about.
