Leap Motion announced today that the new partnership with Asus, will allow it to ship its Leap motion controller with select Asus notebooks and desktops including the Asus All-in-One PCs. With the Leap app stores pre-installed on the selected Asus systems.

“Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.

This isn’t a game system that roughly maps your hand movements. The Leap technology is 200 times more accurate than anything else on the market — at any price point. Just about the size of a flash drive, the Leap can distinguish your individual fingers and track your movements down to a 1/100th of a millimeter.”
