Leap Motion is sending out thousands of developer kits in the next two months. And that means gesture technology will soon be right under your fingertips.

-Leap Motions, 3D motion sensing technology tracks all 10 fingers down to the tiniest wiggle. -Very, very fast and responsive and it's not just good for big motions like this but also for a very, very, very tiny motions like this that's just 1 cm right there, very, very easy. -Thousands of developers around the world will start creating their own applications for the Leap in the next two months. And the uses are wide ranging from simple web-browsing. -Put your hand forward and grab a website and sort of flick it. -To grabbing and rotating complicated data sets and navigating maps, all threatening to render your mouse obsolete. -Sort of zoom in and sort of walk up over here and now we're at San Francisco here. This is our office space, right there. -The Leap connects to your computer through USB port and uses cameras and sensors to detect motion. -It's a fundamental transformation of the experience with interacting with the computer. -Consumers will be able to get their fingers on the device early next year for about 70 bucks. And Leap Motion CEO is betting it won't take a leap of faith for folks to pinch, zoom and wiggle their way into the new technology. -There are lots of the offers we're really excited about. People building great games, people building great stuff for scientists and researchers and even great ways for everyday people to change the way they interact with the web-browser. There's going to an application for everyone. -And when there is, your computer mouse might officially become extinct. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi CNET.com for CBS News.
