    Really sad that MS, who was years ahead in this space with Kinect, didn’t manage to come up with something like this ahead of Leap. It would have been a killer demo for the launch and greatly assisted W8 adoption. They also could have increased their ASPs to OEMs by selling the device as well as the OS.
