Asus to make motion-controlled computers a reality this year

Time to start thinking about flinging that old mouse into the tech graveyard…

Leap Motion's 3D motion control technology – which uses cameras and sensors to let you interact with your PC Minority Report-style – got us all excited last year. We can't wait to waggle our fingers at our computers – and Asus is obliging us, with plans to release laptops and PCs with the Leap Motion tech built-in.

Leap Motion claims that its magical gesture-based kit is 200 times more accurate than anything else currently available – and, coupled with its 12,000 developer-strong support and Asus' quality hardware, that should make your Kinect look very inadequate once Asus' product releases later this year.

We can't wait to ditch our mice and start swishing and flicking our way through apps and games, but we'll have to make do with this video recap of what Leap Motion can do for the time being.
