Leap Motion’s gesture-tracking add-on has been around for some time. HP was selling the Leap Motion keyboard with select PCs and desktops, but it seems that’s not the case anymore.
The folks at Leap Motion told Engadget at Computex 2014 that Leap Motion keyboard will go on sale by the end of this month for $99.99, and will be compatible with all Windows 7 and 8 PCs. That’s a high price, but users could get the gesture-tracking keyboard to work with any Windows PC. All you need to do is install the required software to make sure it works. HP was also selling it in a form of an external dongle, which managed to sell half a million units since its launch, as well as a built-in option in HP Envy 17 laptop.
The technology may not be too popular since it is currently in its infancy. However, it is still good to see that Leap Motion is expanding the usage to all Windows PCs. This can give them a good preview, and user feedback needed to fix the issues and problems which may arise.
