I saw the video yesterday and pre-ordered immediately. Can not wait!

I've been using a tablet instead of a mouse for years ... I'm really excited about this.

I think apple should buy leap motion immediately with a piece of that gigantic cash horde they have. Integrate it into the next operating system (not mountain lion, too late for that), and once again piss on the competition.

Yes, Apple should definitely buy Leap if they want to stay ahead, but I'd be happier if they didn't. It would be a lot better for the market overall if they didn't buy them because it would mean freer development, better app integration, and much more freedom and possibilities.

I prefer the accuracy of the mouse over flailing my arms through the air.

It will be interesting to see how accurate this thing is. I notice they did not show a hyperlink click during the demo video and I was watching for how that was handled.

The thick of it
I just saw this too. I wonder if this is the interface Jobs was talking about when he said he "cracked" the TV problem. Notice they're using an Apple monitor in the demo.
