Some of our readers might remember the Leap gesture control device of computers we featured here on Geeky Gadgets back in May. Which was created by Leap Motion and has been designed to be 200 times more accurate than Microsoft Kinect motion controller designed initially for the Xbox 360.
Well Leap Motion has now revealed that have signed up over 26,000 developers, who are patiently waiting to get their hands on the Leap motion controller device, when it arrives and starts shipping in February 2013 for $70.
Leap Motion has today released a few statistics from the about the signed up developers, explaining that around 14 percent of the developers said they would be creating video games for the device. With 12 percent saying that were hoping to create a music and video based application with leap.
“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.”
If you fancy joining the Leap gesture control device revolution, Leap is now available to pre-order over on the Leap Motion website for $69.99.
