Engadget Review

The Leap Motion controller is well-constructed and relatively inexpensive. However, it's more a novelty than a tool -- best served as a means for entertainment, not productivity.

Pros
  • Fine-tuned motion control for up to 10 fingers at once
  • Simple, space-efficient hardware
  • Well-designed app portal
Cons
  • Limited selection of useful apps
  • Not yet a valid alternative to a mouse or touchscreen
  • A wireless connection would be nice
