    Leap Motion Controller...

    Will the Leap Motion Controller change how we use computers? | Technology | The Guardian

    When John Underkoffler was designing the interface for the film Minority Report, Steven Spielberg told him it should look like the characters were "conducting an orchestra". Now that's a beautiful vision. The gestural control of the future should not be tiring or bothersome, but elegant and accurate.

    As of this week Minority Report has arrived. Or you can pretend to be Iron Man's alter-ego Tony Stark (but sadly without the ability to control multimillion-dollar robots and body armour). Pre-orders of the Leap Motion Controller which was privately funded and allows you to control your computer using gestures in the air, within a volume of eight cubic feet are slowly being delivered in the US, and as of Monday it is available in Britain on Amazon.

    It's another device that would be great for presentations but not so much in a cubicle.
    How can gestures be used to process spreadsheet data?
