We’re being spoiled by these years of blockbuster superhero movies, and our favorite comic book characters are seriously upping our expectations of technology.
Thanks to the amazing visual effects teams of recent sci-fi, the general public is clamoring for stuff as sophisticated as Tony Stark’s setup, like transparent, light-based computer panels hovering in mid-air, able to be swung from one side of the room to the other with a simple swipe hand gesture.
As usual, scientists, engineers, and other innovators are all over this, trying to make sci-fi technology a reality.
One such company is Leap Motion, who has developed a USB computer “controller” that turns your gadget space into a Stark-esque workstation.
From the Leap website:
“With a wave of a hand or lift of a finger, you’re about to change the way you use your computer. The Leap Motion Controller senses how you move your hands, the way you move them naturally. So you can point, wave, reach, and grab. Even pick something up and put it down. Just like in real life. It’s an amazing device for the things you do every day and for things you never thought you could do.”
