Leap Motion: World of gesture control is already close


Perhaps even one of the most interesting things that came out this year and have not been producing Apple / Google / Samsung / Microsoft / Sony , became controller Leap Motion – small size of a stick aluminum block, which delighted almost all journalists for their support “kinektopodobnogo “governance. Some manufacturers of laptops have already expressed their desire to equip their products support this technology, however, the executive director of Leap Motion Bakvald Michael announced that his company on this is not going to stop and focus on the use of this technology in smartphones and tablets.

“We hope that in the third or fourth quarter of next year the market will be tablet computers and phones with integrated technology Leap Motion», – shared in an interview Bakvald Thenextweb.com.

However, the company is not going to limit myself only putting technology in the PC market and mobile devices. Bakvald said that gesture control technology, he would like to see not only in tablet and phone, but also in televisions, wearable electronics, Head-up displays (HUD – pop indicators with important information in the computer and video games) and cars. Unfortunately, the executive director has not shared any details as to how Leap Motion will work with HUD or in the car, but we can already imagine what the opportunities it opens to us. How, for example, the use of HUD, as suggested by the virtual reality glasses Oculus Rift , when your seemingly ordinary human hand starts to act as weapons in first-person shooters? Or how do you control over Google Map StreetView application without the need for constant touch, swipe, zoom in or out with your fingers? The touch screen will not even touch!

Nevertheless Bakvald notes that the company will have to solve a lot of very complex tasks that do not allow to integrate technology Leap Motion in almost all the things of our everyday life. Like the same plate. After the task is not a simple controller integration, and how to make new and innovative products with experience in the integration of this technology.

“In the case of tablets you need to create the possibility of spatial interaction with the device. In this regard, there are some unique experience, which we have already talked to a third-party manufacturers. In fact, people will be able to use the three-dimensional space to interact with the device’s screen in the distance. For example, synchronizing the Android-based smartphone with a TV in another part of the room, you will be able to use the space on your phone to control this TV. ”

Get some sort of remote control device other gestures. Sounds tempting? Will Leap Motion in the future might bring us to the time when we will manage devices in the same way as it did in the movie “Minority Report”? If the company decides all the necessary physical and mechanical parts of the equation, then the future will come sooner rather than later.
