Thanks :-)

@Aleksander - I've not used it with Processing myself, but yes there are libraries for that:

Good ifnormation, thanks! I am planning to buy leap tracker, it is cheaper than kinect and that's why your information is good to me. Do you also use leap motion in processing? Do you know some libraries?

That's right - the hardware is not new here (in fact this is still the dev kit from 2012).

The big improvement with the new drivers is that it doesn't lose tracking when your fingers get too close together as much as it used to. This means you can use some more natural gestures (compare with this video a year ago:

Before you go rushing out to buy one though, I would say - it does still lose tracking fairly frequently, such as when you turn your hands at a certain angle, which rather limits its usefulness. It's fun to play with, but it's not going to replace your mouse.

I'm pretty sure the sensor is the same... but they upgraded the firmware for the leap some months back (with greater accuracy, etc) and the latest Firefly makes use of some of those new features.

What leapmotion model do you have?

The ground is shaking...
