Leap Motion shows off how its controller will interact with Windows 8 in an incredible new video

Today Leap Motion, a company building a motion-capture device that allows people to interact with computers sans touching them, released a video of its device in action with Windows 8.

It’s impressive, but remains a demo; if actual use mirrors this, however, it will present a real challenge to touch. Touch-based computing is the current market trend, with Microsoft, Apple, and Google building platforms and devices that lean on it.

New York, are you ready?

We’re building Momentum: an all killer, no filler event this November.

Touch is but one way to interact with devices. Work in voice is underway with each company. Leap Motion is working in a space that only Microsoft has a viable alternative, with Kinect for Windows.

Happily, Leap Motion is all but out the door. The company announced a delay to July 22nd for the shipping of its product. Enjoy:
