Offering revolutionary motion control software and hardware functionality, Leap Motion has already generated significant buzz amongst developers and consumers for its product release in Spring 2013. CEO Michael Buckwald and CTO David Holz—the two co-founders of this amazing new technology—will celebrate this spring release with a compelling discussion of the future of device interaction on Saturday, March 9 at the 2013 SXSW Interactive Festival.
Titled "The Disappearance of the User Interface," this featured session will cover the new computing paradigm offered by Leap Motion and other similar innovations. Buckwald and Holz will also explain how the human-computer experience is rapidly moving from interaction to integration, from systematic to symbiotic and from unique to ubiquitous. Wall Street Journal senior technology reporter, Jessica Lessin (formerly Vascellaro), will interview the long-time friends and co-founders.
Since announcing in May 2012, Leap Motion has captured the world’s attention and imagination as the company turns science fiction into a reality. The Leap’s introductory video has garnered nearly 7 million views on YouTube, and 40,000+ developers have requested to work with the Leap. Dubbed a 2012 Breakthrough Technology of the Year by Popular Mechanics and named to the Best of What’s New list by Popular Science, the Leap is the world’s most accurate 3D motion control technology.
