If you’ve got a Wii console, you’re familiar with motion control video games. They sense your bodily motions or hand gestures to operate games. Until now, Microsoft’s Kinect technology was as good as it got. Now there’s Leap Motion. This new motion control unit is 200 times more accurate than its predecessor & the USB plug-in device is the size of a stick of gum. It tracks the motion of all 10 of your fingers and is accurate up to 1/100th of a millimeter. Hardcore gamers: jump on this limited-release batch of Leap controllers fast or you’ll be left in the dust until the holidays when they do the full launch.

It’s simple & who isn’t stoked on simple? Source

If all you know about motorcycles is that you need a cool one, get one from Deus Ex Machina. We feature their bikes pretty often and that’s because they don’t make any lame ones.
