Will the Leap Motion replace the touchpad?
jhotz 1 year ago
Both HP and Asus are going to build the Leap Motion into their hardware. I generally dislike the touch pad on laptop, and almost always carry around a mouse when I am out and about with it. The Leap Motion, in case you haven't heard about it, is a sensor that essentially lets you point at your screen to perform the same functions that you would use a touchpad or mouse for currently. Are we seeing the dawn of a new standard? Is the Leap Motion of 2013 a revolution in the same way the mouse was in 1984?
