Innovative Human Computer Interaction

Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with a computer. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen.  For the first time, the user can control a computer in three dimensions with natural free hand and finger movements. Check out the demo video below. 

User experiences wanted!
Free hand and finger movements in front of a computer screen sounds very exciting but what about ergonomic risks? We've heard about repetitive strain injury caused by intensiv typing, clicking a mouse, and interaction with a computer screen. Short interactions with a computer might be no problem, but interacting with a screen with free hand and finger movements a longer period of time could be very exhausting especially for sholders and neck.  Please report user experiences.
