Leap Motion Controller is Becoming a Virtual Steering Wheel

Hold your arm out in front of you. Why isn’t your computer reacting? Toronto-based design firm Teehan+Lax is seeking to fix that unresponsive box of disappointment on your desk by attaching the oft-discussed Leap Motion controller, and giving users a unique way of cruising Google Street view.  The potential of the motion controller is great.  Users have the opportunity to virtually “drive” legendary stretches of road worldwide, or gesturally control a myriad of applications, truly bringing their computers into the future with the sort of functionality many of us expected to have by now.
