Leap Motion Controller

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Are you ready to learn about one of the coolest new computer gadgets out there???

Then let me introduce to you  the Leap Motion Controller, the new 3-D motion-control technology that opens new doors to interactive learning by letting users control computers with natural hand and finger movements. It is great for home use, the workplace, even schools! Teachers around the world have purchased Leap Motion Controllers for their classrooms!

This Leap Motion Controller is like magic!!! It goes where no device has gone before.With a wave of a hand or lift of a finger, you can use your computer in a whole new way. The Leap Motion Controller senses how you move your hands the way you naturally move them. So you can point, wave, reach, and grab. Even pick something up and put it down. Just like in real life. It’s an amazing device for the things you do every day and for things you never thought you could do.

I can definitely admit that after spending all day typing, clicking and using my computer all day, my fingers arms, and elbows get really sore. I have even started to get tendinitis in my fingers and wrists from computer use! The Leap Motion Controller can definitely help me get some relief!

  • Browse the web, read articles, flip through photos, and play music just by lifting a finger.
  • Draw, paint, and design with your fingertip. You can even use a real pencil or paintbrush.
  • Slice falling fruit and shoot bad guys with your finger. Steer cars and fly planes with your hands.
  • Sculpt, mold, stretch, bend, and build 3D objects. Take things apart and put them back together.
  • Reach into the universe, grab the stars, and soar around the sun. It’s a whole new way to learn.
  • Pick, pluck, strum, and drum. Play air guitar, air harp, air everything. For real
You can do everything you normally do on your computer: play games, browse Facebook and Pinterest, listen to music, search on Google. Isn't that amazing???!!

The Leap Motion Controller doesn’t replace your keyboard, mouse, stylus, or trackpad. It works with them, and without special adapters. With the Leap Motion software running, just plug it into the USB on your Mac or PC, and you’re off.
