The Leap Motion controller got unveiled about a year ago. Now it is almost here. The Leap Motion Controller will begin shipping to consumers on May 13th. The shipping will be prioritized by pre-order date. I actually pre-ordered a Leap controller back in May 2012. I am excited to place it under my iMac.
“We’re honored and humbled that hundreds of thousands of people have joined Leap Motion’s global community of developers, pre-order consumers and business partners,” said Leap Motion co-founder and CEO Michael Buckwald. “We know people have been eagerly waiting, and today I’m happy to announce we’re bringing the Leap Motion Controller to the world less than a year after we introduced our technology. We’re taking the time needed to provide an incredible user experience and robust ecosystem of applications for consumers to explore the new power and magic Leap Motion brings to computing.”
The Leap Motion Controller will support operating system interactions with Windows 7 and 8, and Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8. The Leap Motion Controller will also come with access to Airspace, an exclusive Leap Motion application store where users can discover optimized software across a wide variety of categories including gaming, music, education, art, productivity and more.
