Windows The Verge pointed me to a blog post by Leap Motion - which reveals how their Kinect-like motion control works with Windows 8. "From the second you plug in your Leap Motion Controller, you'll be able to browse the web and interact with your computer just by moving your hands and fingers in the air. With Leap Motion technology and Windows, you can do everything that's possible with multi-touch inputs - without actually touching anything. This also means that existing applications in Windows 7 and 8 will respond to your natural hand and finger movements. Soon, we'll show you how Leap Motion will work with Mac OS X." Quite cool.

If a well staffed department would use this it would look mighty silly.

At work I have an application that allows me to make iTunes perform some actions by making hand gestures and this alone generates many remarks.

Yes, I look a mayor donkey if I wave my hand trying to impress a co-worker and the application doesn't pick it up. :-S

Yeah, imagine what it could look like from behind you if you are trying to move a vertical slider up and down ;)
