-Leap Motions, 3D motion sensing technology tracks all 10 fingers down to the tiniest wiggle. -Very, very fast and responsive and it's not just good for big motions like this but also for a very, very, very tiny motions like this that's just 1 cm right there, very, very easy. -Thousands of developers around the world will start creating their own applications for the Leap in the next two months.

This is our office space, right there. -The Leap connects to your computer through USB port and uses cameras and sensors to detect motion. -It's a fundamental transformation of the experience with interacting with the computer. -Consumers will be able to get their fingers on the device early next year for about 70 bucks. And Leap Motion CEO is betting it won't take a leap of faith for folks to pinch, zoom and wiggle their way into the new technology. -There are lots of the offers we're really excited about.
