Leap Motion Unveil New Gesture Controlled Game, Development Tools And More (video)
Some of our readers might remember the Leap Motion device we featured
back in August of this year, which has been created to provide Kinect
style gesture control to computers systems.
However the Leap Motion device is 200 times more accurate than Microsoft Kinect motion controller which was initially designed for the Xbox 360 gaming console.
Now leap motion has announced that they
have created a number of new development tools, and will be
releasing 10,000 Leap units to new developers, aiding them develop and
build software applications and games for the new gesture control
"Our top priority is making sure that when the Leap Motion
controller ships to consumers, it is supported by a wide array of
quality apps,” Leap Motion co-founder and CEO Michael Buckwald said in a statement.
Once officially launched the Leap gesture control device will also
ship with its own app store and Leap Motion has unveiled the very first
game developed to use their device, which can be seen in the video
Unfortunately no information on whether major applications such as
Microsoft Office, iPhoto, or even web browsers such as Chrome will
incorporate support for Leap gestures, but as soon as information comes
to light we will keep you updated as always.
