A select crop of manufacturers are starting to put gesture control into new HDTVs. Now, a company named Leap Motion is extending the same courtesy to computer users—and it will only cost you $70.
Starting next month, the company will start taking pre-orders for its Leap Motion Controller. The Best Buy exclusive will then start shipping in the spring.
Designed to work with Windows Vista/7/8 and Mac OS X, the Leap Motion can track hand movements up to 1/100th millimeter. With no visible lag time, the Leap Motion Controller boasts a 150-degree field of view and can track individual hands and all 10 fingers at up to 290 frames per second.
All you need to do is connect the iPod-sized Leap Motion Controller to your computer’s USB port and install some software. The installation process also includes calibration, which the company says is as easy as waving your hand.
For a peek at the Leap Motion Controller in action, check out the video below. Otherwise, you can order up your own Leap Motion Controller from Best Buy next month, for just $69.95.
The new Episode subwoofers includes 6-, 8-, 10- and 12-inch sealed options.
