My dad found a very cool video on Mashable that he showed me. It is a preview of a product called Leap Motion. The idea is that 8 cubic feet in front of your computer will be an interactive space to use with your hands. Your hands can control your computer, just like your mouse. It’s only $70 and it is supposed to be 200 times more sensitive than Microsoft Kinect. You will be able to plug it into a USB port. It is supposed to come out in December 2012 or January 2013, so you have to pre-order. Here is a cool video:
We can’t believe that Geekdad wrote an article about our Interactive Advent Calendar app on wired.com! I’m so honored and excited! My dad came home on Monday and showed me the article about the app. We were high-fiving and congratulating each other. Since then I’ve been showing all of my friends and family.
My dad first introduced me to Geekdad a couple of years ago when they interviewed Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, the creators of Phineas and Ferb on the Geekdad podcast. Since then we’ve enjoyed a lot of their articles and even entered a few of their contests. One of my favorite articles is the one where they promoted a “box of mystery” contest that we entered. We didn’t win that contest, but I think an article about our app is much better. Thanks Nathan Barry (@geekDadNath on Twitter) for writing such a great article!
