The Leap

The Leap, which is expected to be released early next year, should cost $70 and come with access to an app store where developers will make their creations available. The device connects to a computer via a USB port.

Unlike existing technologies, the Leap can recognize each of a user's fingers, allowing him or her to control things at the finger level.
