Hi guys/gals,

Are you planning to support Leap Motion device in the near future? You can see info about here: http://www.leapmotion.com
Device will cost only $69.99 and it can do a lot of tracking 3D info from hands in real time.

I already subscribed to them as developer and will receive my box this Tuesday.

I think it will be really intuitive way of folding.

PS: I want to try to integrate my C# code I already have for visualising of cif and pdb files, rosetta code and this device as proof of concept, but I think that you guys have to implement it as it will may improve the quality of folding.

Also this comment: http://fold.it/portal/node/993597

After writing that, I did pm dyh back in late September 2012, and received this pm back from him:

<<
Yes we have been in touch with LeapMotion, and hopefully to have this version ready in Dec.
>>

I ordered mine back in September, and am really hoping that it arrives soon - and that the Foldit devs have followed through on development!

Good to know that it in workings!
That will be a really cool stuff when in will be developed.
$70 is not that much for such a device.

I just got my email confirmation for shipping May 13

I am hoping that dyh or whomever took over for him developing for the Leap Motion managed to finish, so that we can use them to fold when they arrive?
