    Some of the comments suggests it is a scam. What do you think? For real or not?

    There is a lot of focus on peripherals and the type of glass used, and nothing whatsoever about how the holographic part of it actually works. It also seems way too cheap. I say scam.

    Did you see a tentative price for this device? I must have missed it.

    Near the bottom:
    For $685 USD, you get one Holus. An $846 USD pledge fetches one Holus Pro and one Leap Motion Sensor.


    Those may not be final store prices, but rather what kickstarter contributors pay.

    I see the leapmotion sensor is only $100 which is less than I thought.

    But still a Holus for less than the price of a Microsoft Surface tablet? Although I guess I should be comparing it to the price of a screen or 3D screen.
