The (nearly) fully disassembled Leap Motion

There you have it, folks–the Leap Motion in all its shattered glory. I plugged it in and tried it out while it was in pieces and it still works surprisingly well. That said, it works much better with the packaging in place.

I’m pretty impressed by the simplicity of it, but I can’t say I’m all that surprised. As with the Google Glass Teardown, it’s pretty clear that the magic is in the code, not the hardware. I’m also impressed by the thought that went into the design. Clearly, the Leap Motion folks have some skilled engineers putting some thought into how to make a durable, quality product.
