I watched a video of it, and it was a really interesting looking product. Of course, since it hasn't been released yet, I haven't had an opportunity to play around with it myself. The accuracy shown in the video was impressive. A blogger, I can't remember from which site, was using it and it looked as if she could point anywhere on the screen and her finger gestures were recognized instantly and accurately. Think Tom Cruise in Minority Report controlling the screens with gestures; well, this pretty much seemed to duplicate that. With the caveat about seeing how well the production version actually functions, I can see a place for The Leap in the office, especially at the low puchase cost. It's like a super mouse, plus it has a really high "cool factor", and I have found that people respond favorably to interesting new things at the office. It shows that you are interested in them and want to make their lives better, or at least that is what I hope.
