  4. This + Leap Motion, anyone?

  5. How do we turn it into a weapon?

  6. yeah. it's so stupid that people even bother trying to bring out innovation. we should all hate them the moment they try to come out with new ideas because it's a total waste of time and we never needed a game better than pong.

  7. if they make it quieter and it gives a nice feeling i'd probably want this…

  8. its just in its early stages… buy this might be the future. Next to your game console to bring the game more to life.

  9. And let me guess it's gonna end up at Disney land

  10. Hmm we are up to 5th, that would make me 6th.
    Also the technology looks interesting but couldn't see people using it in the real world.

  11. C-c-c-c-c-combo Breaker!

  12. 5th (Let's break the counting record!)

  13. why is youtube obsessed with counting?
