Leap Motion-a new peripheral for interacting with your computer. Wave with your hands!

The startup LeapMotion has a very interesting peripheral for interacting with your computer.

You’ve seen touch computing with the iPad and with the Magic Trackpad. You’ve seen touch-screen all-in-one computers for Windows. Well, you’ve seen ads for them.

Now imagine waving your hands in the air and seeing the results on the screen. That’s what the Leap device can do for you. Go check out their Web site here.

After you’ve checked out the device, check out their list of investors. Leapmotion may be two guys in a garage, but that’s one well-financed garage!

Leap states that they do not intend to stop with a stand-alone USB peripheral. No, they intend to collaborate with other companies to integrate their device into computers.

I hope and pray that these guys have talked to Apple about including the Leap into some future generation of Macs. As for Microsoft, they should embrace this.
