Leap Motion has given technology enthusiasts a reason to be happy with a video of its new gesture-control platform. This showcased a system of incredible speed and precision, but controlled demos can sometimes not give you a fair assessment.

Much ike the Kinect, the peripheral tracks human body gestures, and translates this movement into corresponding motions on a video display. According to Leap Motion, its input device is 200 times more precise than Kinect or anything else on the market.

The device has been designed for gaming, designing, and 3D modeling. Leap Motion will make an SDK and APIs available to developers, and there are plans on shipping the first batches of the hardware to developers as well.
