We first used to dream that a day will come when everything will be done with just a flick of the hand. Our dream has finally come true!

It is even easier now to manipulate objects and flip through photos without touching the screen. Business users will feel more relieved as Leap motion will allow them to answer their calls and give effective presentations painlessly!
