Imagine if you could do things on your computer just like you do in real life. A new device debuted at the SXSW Festival earlier this month let's you do just that.

Leap Motion, the motion-control software and hardware company, announced their new Leap Motion Controller. Inventors call it a tiny device with a huge idea.

The Leap Motion Controller senses your hands and fingers and follows their every move. It lets them move in all that wide-open space between you and your computer, so you can do everything on your computer without even touching anything.

The Leap Motion Controller is an easy, natural, and fun way to browse the web, read articles, and move around your computer screen.

Leap Motion is available for pre-order on their website and are expected to ship on May 13th. The device will also be availble in Best Buy stores starting May 19th.
