These are a couple of links to a new monitor that will be out in December. I have pre-ordered one even knowing that there is a pretty good chance that there will be bugs in this new technology. You don't even touch the screen using this 3-D motion control monitor.

The technology is very clever but I wonder what happens if you move your hands around without intending to do anything on the computer/monitor? Reach over the sensor to pick a pen up for instance? I'd be interested to read how you get on with it later in the year.

Will the quiz speed advantage now pass to polydactyls?

I will let you know what I think of it once I get it.

I was supposed to get the leap technology this week. The ship date has once again been pushed back. Pre-orders are to be shipped July 22, 2013. I have had this on order for almost a year now. I hope this is worth the wait!
