Today Leap Motion announced we’re working with HP to embed our 3-D motion-control technology into unique HP devices. The deal, which has been in development for more than a year, signifies a major step in bringing touch-free, intuitive computing to the world.
- The HP relationship will start with the Leap Motion Controller bundled with select HP personal computers (available this summer) and evolve to unique HP devices embedded with Leap Motion’s technology (we can’t specify products or timing – HP will share more at a later date).
- In addition to Leap Motion’s easy-to-embed hardware, our software – including Airspace, our app store – will be pre-loaded on Leap Motion-integrated HP devices. This provides tremendous opportunity for our developer community to gain an even larger global audience of users.
- This is the first embedding deal Leap Motion has announced (ASUS was a bundling deal), and is another significant endorsement of Leap Motion’s technology.
- Leap Motion’s vision is to bring our 3-D motion-control technology to the world and be everywhere computers are. The collaboration with HP represents a major step in that direction.
** In addition to the HP deal, we’re also sharing more global distribution news: This week Amazon.co.uk began accepting pre-orders of the Leap Motion Controller for £70. http://tinyurl.com/dx99w3d
