Yeah, I heard about leap motion too! The reviews are quite good. When we utilize computer systems as efficiency tools to improve the way we work and play, we do not want to be slowed down by a sub-standard input device like the traditional mouse and keyboard. Do you agree? Therefore, leap motion is the key! According to Wired, Leap Motion  have mastered the motion controller. The fully 3-D motion control program will be bundled with Asus PC laptops and then other platforms. I find it here: http://personalmoneynetwork.com/moneyblog/2013/01/04/leap-motion/. I never thought that this would be possible. Indeed, this is amazing!
