A new start-up named Leap Motion shows off a new 3D Motion control system that works with any computer screen. The Leap Motion system consists of a $70 USB device and a software platform. You can control anything on the screen without touching it with unseen accuracy.
The release of the Leap Motion device is somewhen next year. My guess though is that a big guy like Microsoft or Apple is eating them up before release. Watch the impressive demo video below.
I report since over a decade about new gadgets. I got pretty unemotional about new gear and almost never pre-order anymore. I did though just file pre-order for a Leap Motion device.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
