Fleksy Demos Leap Motion Integration at SXSW, Releases New iOS SDK
Syntellia, the company behind popular alternative keyboard app Fleksy, is developing software that will allow the app to work with the upcoming Leap Motion Controller. Syntellia is demoing the Fleksy and Leap Motion combo at SXSW this week.
Fleksy is a text-input system that implements advanced predictive text algorithms to allow users to type without looking at the screen of the iPhone or the iPad. Though it offers a traditional tap typing interface, it also supports simple gestures for space and delete.
In combination with the touch-free Leap Motion, Fleksy offers gesture-based typing that can be done in the air. Air typing with Fleksy functions much like the iOS app, with error correction on the fly.
Syntellia is also debuting an iOS SDK, allowing third party apps to use the Fleksy keyboard, as explained by TechCrunch.

Why would they use a video where he didn't even get one word correct without autocorrect? Also, people are normally able to type three words in about a second, not 6 seconds.

Interesting concept, but the video doesn't sell it well - not to me.
I mean, I get it. They're trying to demo autocorrect, but the typing was slow and the message/persentation wasn't impactful.
Given the "intensity" of the opening sequence and soundtrack, I was expecting more than three autocorrected words that spelled out a marketing cliche'.
That said, there are some great possibilities here.

I've had this on pre-order since End of July last year..... I was starting to think vapor ware until I got notification of expected shipping date if May 15th...
Only benefit pre-ordering so long ago is I got it cheaper than current price and international shipping has increased in cost too.

Secondly, it doesn't work as "magically" as promised. Even after giving it some time, it still was significantly slower than the normal keyboard.
Much of the problem, in my opinion, lies in the way you have to swipe for a space, instead of simply tapping the space bar. It takes waaay too long, especially since it is the most typed symbol.
