Sounds great until you forget its on, start doing some yoga and realise you have pulled every vertices in your 50+ hour scale model of a deathstar over to the left of the screen

Ordered last year when it was first announced - looking forward to using it at work for manipulating our spatial data

I think it only works in a small(ish) area above the device - take your hands away to type/stretch etc and it'll move out of range.

I remember seeing this ages ago and thinking "this must be bullshit", but I'm glad to be wrong!

I think this looks like a great idea. After using my android phone I realised how badly the PC needed a better interface for some things.

Since I don't want to buy a touch screen this could be it - no smudgy finger prints all over the place! Browse the web while eating crisps! Use your forehead to draw in paint! Awesome!

for interactions like holding a 3D object, manipulating maybe the start screen of windows 8, this may be efficient, but for actual drawings, aside from a tablet, I think its much practical to use a touch screen imo

It's certainly neat, but is it really that usefull for desktop use? Perhaps if it uses standard touch screen api's so Windows Touch Pack works etc but I really want to test it oput first.

Give me two minutes and I can think of a few dozen different gestures that 'could' be implemented to embellish a keyboard / mouse or keyboard / trackpad or keyboard / mouse / touchscreen environment.

Leap haven't ever come out and said 'this device will replace X". They're throwing it out there to see what people do with it.

Brilliant idea!
