Vapor Ware Leap for Mac!
It’s always refreshing when talented 3D artists stop making fake iPhone 5 prototypes and turn their attention to something more important – like making fake XBox Kinnect for Mac videos! Check out this pretty sweet video for something called “The Leap”, a little box (too little to actually work, methinks) that basically adds Minority Report/Tony Stark tech to your Mac.
The video is very well done, and the only thing technically wrong with it is that by the time someone could actually make this thing, Apple will have stopped making Macs completely. Oh well. I’d still buy one, even if the only thing shown that I might actually use would be Fruit Ninja.
I’m sorry to be so skeptical that this thing will ever ship, but it’s a testament to how cool it appears to be that I cannot believe the video is real. I mean, Microsoft can’t build something that accurate in 3D at 4 times the size and cost. However, the Leap DOES have a webpage you can (pre-)order one from, and we know how hard those are to get, so maybe it IS real… The unit sells for $69.99, and if any of you are daring enough to actually place an order, please send me a screenshot. And if LeapMotion has any prototypes they want to send our way for review purposes, we are open to blowing you. Thanks.
