3D Printer Finger Painting with Leap Motion (by HotPopFactory)

I saw this demo at Maker Faire Toronto and it was pretty incredible. I love the use of gesture motion input device, Leap Motion, as a 3D printing modelling tool. 

And kids get it!

World’s thinnest wireless touch interface

imadeit-davidjanes:

CSR has developed the world’s thinnest wireless touch interface to demonstrate the revolutionary potential of Bluetooth® Smart for computing interfaces. The flexible device, which is less than 0.5 mm thick, turns any area into a touch surface. Combining CSR’s low-power wireless technology with the latest in printable, flexible electronics from Conductive Inkjet Technology and touch screen sensing from Atmel, the device can be used to extend the touch interface of tablets and smartphones.

Elon Musk will reveal gesture-based rocket design program inspired by Iron Man
SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder Elon Musk has often been compared to a real life version of Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. Director Jon Favreau has even openly said that Musk inspired his depiction of Stark in the first Iron Man film. But now it seems as though the imitation has come full circle: Musk tweeted last night that he’d “figured out how to design rocket parts just w[ith] hand movements,” and would post a video of the process “next week.” Favreau tweeted at Musk asking: “Like in Iron Man?” And Musk responded in the affirmative.

Leap Motion with Windows

With Leap Motion technology and Windows, you can do everything that’s possible with multi-touch inputs — without actually touching anything.

Looking forward to get my hands above(?) this. It certainly looks awesome. The Leap Motion Controller costs $ 79.99 and the company will start shipping on July 22nd. A Mac OS X demo video is on its way as well.
