6. Leap Motion

I first wrote about gesture interfaces way back in 2011. Back then, it took a room full of sensors, a glove, and some Hollywood magic to make gestures into reality. The Leap Motion, released this past summer, costs only $80 and lets you draw, paint, swipe, and grab using only your hands. The setup is ultra-simple and the device is a hair bigger than a deck of cards. It could be a great addition to your product and sales demos.
