I'm confused. I bought a LEAP years ago. I was impressed with it's potential, however I was very disappointed in that it didn't have software which could emulate a mouse in ANY software, as if it WAS a mouse. Specifically, it didn't support "clicking" at all.
I just bought a $5000 computer, and figured that after several years, there must be a new version of LEAP that fixed the problems and I would buy that. There isn't any indication that the LEAP has been improved with newer versions other than to integrate with a VR unit which I have no interest in.
In this forum, I see that Leap no longer has an SDK (Software Developers Kit) for Windows, and the old one is for Windows 7. I really don't care about an SDK either. All the Leap needs to make it a very nice, usable product is software to emulate a MOUSE! I know that is possible, because there were people developing applications to use the LEAP in SPECIFIC applications such as Autocad.. but I don't feel like installing dozens of apps for dozens of programs all to achieve the same thing in that particular program. I used to be a software programmer and I'm sure I could write such software myself. I stopped programming because programmers are paid so poorly. One could make more money working at a fast food restaurant than writing software.
I'm also puzzled that nobody else has come up with a product similar to the Leap. That is probably due to patents. Patents expire. I suggest Leap gets their act together and makes some money off their product before some company in China starts making a better version for 1/10th the cost. Maybe Leap should sell their patents to Logitech or Intel or Realtek.. all of which make infrared cameras for PCs.
