We’ve been following the promises of LEAP Motion for almost a year now, and it looks like the wait is nearing its end. The company, whose technology is promising to revolutionize the way we interact with our PCs, has been in pre-order status for close to 12 months, with dev units shipped out and applications being written.
Recently, the company doubled down and relaunched their pre-order effort at a slightly higher cost and with a targeted ship date of this May. Now it seems like they’ve scored their first major partnership.
In an attempt to stay one step ahead of the competition, HP has entered a partnership with LEAP that will incorporate their technology into future PCs. According to LEAP’s press release, the first iteration of products will bundle the pre-existing controller along with the desktop or notebook in a single box.
Future revisions, however, will see the technology integrated entirely into the product – like beneath the trackpad of a notebook or the keys of a gaming keyboard.
There’s no word yet as to whether the partnership is exlusive or what sort of price premium it might carry for end-users.
