Leap Motion signs deals to embed ‘gesture control’ technology in HP PCs

London, Apr 17 (ANI): The motion-control software and hardware company, Leap Motion, has announced a deal to embed its technology within HP computers.

The controller is able accurately to detect the movement of 10 fingers at once, allowing for intricate gesture-based controls.

According to the BBC, initially, the product will be aimed at consumers as a gaming and entertainment device.

But the firm’s president Andy Miller said partnerships with car and medical industries would be announced soon, the report said.

The product is similar in function to the popular Microsoft Kinect gaming peripheral, but is designed to be used at much closer range, and can detect more intricate movements.

Miller said that the HP PCs that will have the hardware built in would be available by the summer. (ANI)
