    After months of hype we can finally play with the Leap Motion Controller. 

    It’s a small device – about the size of a pack of gum – which attaches to your PC or Mac via a USB cord and allows you to make gestures to control various apps.  

    Twirl your finger to browse The New York Times or wave your hand to play a virtual harp.  The gestures are limited and the device can be a bit finicky, but it’s fun to use.   

    Perhaps it just needs the right app.  For now, I’ll use the mouse.

    Leap Motion Controller $80
