While hunting for a pressure sensitive tablet, which initially started as a question about the Wacom Cintiq (in another thread in this part of the forum), I came across the Leap 3D Motion; http://leapmotion.com/

After watching the video, it seems to me that this gadget could well make Wacom and other tablets old news, especdially for desktop computer use. It's only $70 too (pre-order) which makes it worth a try. Has anyone seen the Leap demonstrated or had a hands on (hands off really) experience with it?

Holding your hand up in the air all day is not going to replace the pen any time soon unless your job is "busy looking background character in a budget scifi movie".

I suppose time will tell. At some point someone will put up a video of it being used in Photoshop or ZBrush.

...perhaps 3DConnexion should be worried. This might be useful in replacing the basic spacenavigator. Especially since it's only 3/4 the price.

+1 if drivers are good and application support is EASY to implement

I'm rooting for them.

Time has already told me this will not replace the Clintiq. Just like Kinect wont replace the controller, and the controller wont replace the keyboard and mouse.

No- maybe added functionality but then again will they compete or will they mesh well?
