This new partnership is a significant milestone for the technology
Having already joined the motion control party by partnering withPrimeSense, the company behind Microsoft’s Kinect, ASUS is now partnering with Leap Motion, the company responsible for a sensor that enables full control of a PC or Mac using hand and finger gestures. The 3D motion control tech will be bundled with selected ASUS’ high-end notebooks and All-in-One (AiO) PCs by the end of 2013.
The Leap Motion controller has the ability to track the movement of the user’s hand (including all 10 fingers) at a blistering 290 frames per second, tracking movements to 1/100th millimeter. Leap Motion claims that the USB accessory is some 200 times more accurate than competing devices such as Microsoft’s Kinect for Windows.
Although it’s possible to pre-order the Leap Motion controller from the company’s website for US$69, this new partnership is a significant milestone for the technology, and shows that OEM partners believe it has genuine potential in the consumer sector. If it proves successful, we might see the Leap Motion sensor being integrated into future PC or notebooks rather than simply being bundled with existing systems as a separate peripheral.
