Leap Motion
« on: May 26, 2012, 03:55:07 pm »
Quigibo mentioned today in his thread Leap Motion, which was pretty epic to all of us who were online at that moment on omnomIRC.
So, why not tell what epic stuff you'd imagine to do with it?
I'd find it epic to have some cool 3D GUI on computers, like a 3D-desktop.

Oh, if this is in the wrong category then please move it!

3D games, obviously. With immersive stuff, stuff like that.

Or else, integration with Axe?

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

How about interfacing directly with the OS?  That would be pretty cool.

It can already emulate a standard mouse, touchpad, and stylus.  So everything in that respect is already reverse compatible.  However, those devices all only have 2 degrees of freedom which is kind of a waste of another dimension entirely.  The cool part comes in when you actually can use all 3 dimensions to physically manipulate objects in real 3D space, and 3D screens and headsets make the experience even more realistic.

I wonder how starcraft would play with this


Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*

So this is like the Kinect in same way, but better ? (No Microsoft, and possible official Linux support :D)
In that case, I'm sold :)

The combination of this, a Raspberry Pi and XBMC is going to be great !

That would be very awesome if humanity evolved to that level of interfacing

Maybe 3D communication like in star wars
