I agree, CADMAN-LT. This is first generation stuff and we all know how quickly stuff evolves. Subsquent generations will definitely advance the technology and work the kinks out.

I mean no it can't do weather or directions off-line, but it can at least do music for you. I also have a question, tell me that siri can call your friends for you...even off-line...I mean come on? If it doesn't, then glad I saved my money.

I was just reading how Jelly Bean has a semi-Siri built in. That means that is does not need the internet to work. At first I thought, ohh ok, big deal. Then I just heard(and no I don't have an IPhone) that if you request a song to siri and you aren't online it doesn't work(even if the song is on your phone). Bummer. Then what Jelly Bean does makes all the more sense.

@CadmanLT: I think you're right about this being the future and second generation and third generation only advancing things further. Look at the post on research around robots and human gestures. They're using a lot of the same concepts.

Not only that, but even though it is 1st gen. There are a lot of people working on it. Look at the XBOX Kinect. It didn't take a genius to decide that we want that stuff on a pc...hence the LEAP. It will just keep getting better. Heck the LEAP is cheap compared to the kinect..no surpise there. Not to mention all the tv guys incorporating the same tech...no box needed. I want a new tv...lol

Thanks Charles. I saw a show the other day talking about this very thing. Two guys..one for and one against...well one thinking "never". The anti guy was saying how noise is a problem for talking to the tv(or whatever device). The pro guy was saying that in a few years they will have so many samples of people talking in noisy environments that that will no longer be an issue. I agree with him. It won't be an issue eventually. This is like 1st gen stuff....like PS1. Wait till the 3rd gen stuff...they will have fixed all the probs by then.

I agree, Cadman-LT. In a couple of decades, this will be the predominant form of input.

Beth, I mentioned this thing last month. I agree with what you are saying, I was saying the same thing. It will be useful, once it's use is shown and people acknowledge it. This kind of input is already being incorporated directly into tvs(no external device needed). This is the future of input it seems and will be integrated into everything before you know it. No more remotes, just talk and wave your hands.

NEW??? 3D motion control for industrial robots??
William K.   6/11/2012 12:10:17 PM

The robot makers long ago eliminated the error prone method of sensing what the programmer intended as a rototic motion. The result was direct control of all six axis. Why in the worl waste time and effort in making it easy for the untalented, untrained, and unskilled person to program a robot for some task? Or is this an effort to put robots in every household, in the name of increased profits? There are thousands of folks who are totally unable to think out the results of their actions, and what we rally do not need is those folks programming robots, which can move much faster than people, but who are also capable of making the same wrong move repeatedly. What the developers are doing is attempting to blast the lid off of Pandora's Box, again.

vaporware?

"Here's the best news. The Leap is pretty cheap. As it is not available yet, those interested in taking it for a spin can pre-order the device for $69.99." Turns out that you pre-order and get charged when the item is shipped - projected for early 2013!!!!

Am I the only one who smells vaporware?
