Nokia is working to integrate its HERE services with Leap Motion (www.leapmotion.com). We previously looked at the new technology (and currently have one on order) that enables consumers to interact with Windows 8 (and other platforms), using nothing more than hand gestures and the magic of technology. So how can this tie in with Nokia's HERE service and why should you be impressed?
Check out the video below and see for yourself. The HERE team has added functionality and connectivity for the Leap Motion to interact with the interface provided through the web. The example footage shows said interaction with a run through Berlin. Now, we'll not be alone when we shout out "That's cool! I want one!"
The HERE 3D mapping and Leap Motion interface creates a unique experience for users who wish to fly around a virtual world. It's actually quite something and we look forward to testing this out. If you're interested in pre-ordering a Leap Motion for yourself, be sure to head on over to the official website.
Leap Motion will be invaluable for those who have Windows 8 installed on a desktop computer that doesn't sport a touchscreen. As well as HERE Maps, owners will be able to perform other tasks throughout the OS. We're excited, will you be pre-ordering one?
