I was wondering if you have any developers working on this developer kit yet. How could would gesture controlled ship spinning be, or swiping through and pinching a star map like you see them doing with google maps....or punching at the air instead of pressing F1.

This could be a pretty cool add-on.

Why only this one, and not a dozen of other similar "kits"?

I've had a prototype device for a few months and it's pretty amazing. Unfortunately my team has been pretty busy working on other things to play with it, but it's scheduled for releasing in July with actual drivers.

They did just release Unity api a few days ago btw. Leap is by far ahead of the pack regarding similar devices, as posted above.
