“Developers that do take advantage of the Leap’s SDK will be able to do much more, however, and the possibilities appear to be limited only by your imagination. All kinds of different apps are being developed: some could improving remote surgery, others allow easier navigation through complex models and data, and others might put you square in the middle of a first-person shooter. It’s like holding the Mario Kart steering wheel, but on a whole new level.”
“Bruce Sterling, the author and public intellectual who, in his book Shaping Things (2oo5), turns his well-honed imagination for science fiction to the project of unpacking the contours of contemporary technoculture, provides another vector of inspiration for this project when he speculates about the changing relationship between people and objects.” Pg. 5-6

Technology is drastically changing with time and groundbreaking developments are constantly surfacing changing the way humans interact with the world and virtual world. The idea of waving you hand in the air to control an object or device was only viewed as science fiction done in films like the “Minority Report” where the operative manipulated a projected 3d monitor with their hands. If that visual isn’t mind blowing enough another possible inspiration for this device could be Jedi mind trick powers from “Star Wars” were the user uses the (force or technology) to control an object real or virtual. The relationship between people and objects are constantly changing and evolving and this is a huge step in the process.
