5 Ways Gestural Control Could Change Everything

Robotic Surgery

With accuracy of up to .001 millimeters, a Leap Motion device could enable doctors to perform precise surgical procedures by manipulating robotic arms. It could also allow them to treat patients remotely-particularly useful for soldiers in combat zones or astronauts in space. The ability to manipulate robotic arms precisely and at a distance could transform other detailed or remote mechanical work-for example, repairing a fighter jet on the other side of the world.
