Nokia HERE Maps and Leap Motion to Merge – Air Gestures to fly 3D Maps

Screen Shot 2013-05-30 at 07.25.52Leap motion is technology that allows the use of hand and finger air gestures to use multitouch control gestures on the screen. This means the ability to have touch screen inputs on regular, touch-free screens.

Check it out in this first video. We may have have discussed this before.

Leap Motion represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.

It makes sense particularly for Windows 8 which is said to best work with touch input. Whilst it could work, say, with a camera like Kinect, this method seems a lot more accurate.

Now see what Nokia wants to do with it. It’s very Matrix/Iron-Man.

All fancy stuff. But when are we going to see any of this moving onto Mobile?
