Here you can download the Kinect SDK, You need a windows 7 pc to install the Kinect SDK.

From the windows experience index (access from computer->right click->properties) with CPU scored 7+ and graphics score 6+ would give you better detection on Kinect.

Should you have any comments or suggestions, please PM "dyh"

Apparently available this coming February, from the article:

"Connected to any Windows or Mac OS X computer, the Leap uses a combination of infrared LEDs and 1.3-megapixel camera sensors to monitor movement in an 8-cubic-foot field. Leap’s software runs custom algorithms to convert what the device sees into a 3-D map of the user’s hands. The system detects movements as small as one-hundredth of a millimeter—200 times the sensitivity of the Microsoft Kinect—which allows the system to track individual fingertips."

This also in the article: "Leap Motion plans to ship the first round of devices to software developers of varying specialties, including gaming and graphic design". Maybe you folks can request one?
