Several months ago a product on Kickstarter called Leap Motion caught everyone’s attention. The little device sits in front of your computer and tracks the motion of your hands. This allows users to perform Kinect-like gestures on any computer. The project was quickly funded, but today Leap has announced an even bigger accomplishment. Thanks to a new relationship with Asus, Leap Motion will come bundled on select Asus products later this year.
Asus will bundle Leap Motion on all-in-ones and high end laptops. Devices with Leap Motion will also come preinstalled with the Leap Motion app store. The app store was an area of concern before because a Kickstarter product may not get many developers, but this relationship with Asus is sure to put that to rest. Now Leap Motion will see a much wider audience, and it will even go international. We really like the idea of Leap Motion paired with a Windows 8 PC. It would be very handy to just be able to lift your arm up and swipe in the air to switch apps instead of having to actually touch the screen or use a mouse.
Would you buy a PC with Leap Motion built in?
