The New York Times Will Release A Gesture-Controlled News App For Leap Motion

new york times leap motionThe New York Times says it plans to release a Top News app for Leap Motion, the soon-to-be-released controller that will allow users to interact with their computers through gestures — in fact, it will be the only branded news app for the platform's launch. In the case of The Times' app, users should be able to browse articles by moving their hands left and right. Headlines, images, and summaries will be presented in a card format, and if you see something that interests you, you tap on the card to read the full article. You then scroll through the article by making a circular motion, and you shake your hand to return to the Top News menu. (I wasn't able to try the app myself, but you can see it in action in the video below.)
