Leap Motion technology has been announced back in September and the fact that HP will embed it into their laptops. It seems that Leap Motion is finally ready and Hewlett-Packard is embedding its gesture-control technology in 11 new computers.
As a short description for those of you who have missed it, Leap Motion is a tech developed to allow users to control their computers with hand gestures alone, with accuracy down to a hundredth of a millimeter. In September, HP said it was incorporating Leap Motion’s tech into the Envy 17 laptop, making it the first manufacturer to build the system directly into a computer. This time around, however, HP is embedding the system into stand-alone keyboards, as well as into laptops. The Leap Motion system will be included in eight HP desktop all-in-one machines, and three new desktop PCs.
Officials from the Leap Motion HQ based in San Francisco said integration with computers like those from HP is just the beginning.
“In the future, motion control will become a part of everyday life,” the company said in its blog post, “with motion-control technology embedded in a wide variety of devices — including tablets, smartphones, interactive kiosks, and head-mounted displays.”
Details on when such integrations would take place or which partners it will work with to bring them to reality however have not been discussed.
