Leap Motion

Gesture control on a tablet has been around for years, but this small device takes it to a new level. Leap Motion sits next to your computer and can detect your hand movements with an accuracy of 1/100 of a millimeter. Without touching your screen, you can flip through photos or reach into a 3D diagram and manipulate objects. For business users, the implication could be as simple as this: a way to answer the phone or give a presentation with just a flick of the hand.
