A gesture-filled Windows 8 experience is headed your way before we ring in 2014. Asus has inked a deal with Leap Motion.
The PlayStation 2's massive success spawned an incredible library of games. Some of them were clear phenomena like Ratchet and Clank and the re-birthed Grand Theft Auto series, but others flew under the radar, only to explode into something special years later.

Mind-controlled prosthetics are making leaps and bounds in terms of dexterity. Research at the University of Pittsburgh has yielded what's considered the most advanced prosthetic arm control system yet. We've come a long way from Captain Hook with brain implants and prosthesis.
