Leap Motion. The new reliable low cost depth camera

Leap Motion, a company in San Francisco has just announced a new low cost depth camera with an amazing accuracy (at least for close range applications).

If so, we should probably have a new sensor to take in mind for robotic perception and particularly for SLAM.
