HP to embed Leap Motion gesture control in certain devices

Ever since the debut of the Leap Motion last year, the device has won fans by showing how Minority Report-style gesture control can become a part of our daily lives right now. The upstart electronics company has sealed another major deal that could ensure that this next-gen tech goes mainstream. 



Leap Motion and HP have announced a partnership that will see the device bundled with the company's computers. However, in addition to the bundle deal, HP will also embed the gesture control technology in certain devices.

HP's senior vice president, Ron Coughlin, said, "Customers want to go to the next level when creating and interacting with digital content. Leap Motion’s groundbreaking 3-D motion control combined with HP technology and amazing developer apps will create incredible user experiences."


This latest deal follows the company's partnership with Asus announced in January, and an exclusive deal with Best Buy that will bring the $79.99 device to its stores in May. If you're somehow still not aware of what the Leap Motion is, or how it works, you can see it in action the video below.
