The company that produces software and hardware motion control, ensures that modeling a 3D object with your own hands will be as simple as modeling clay.
“It’s a very important moment for the company, but this is just the beginning,” says Michael Buckwald, co-founder and CEO of Leap Motion. “Leap Motion improves computer work and allows people to do it in a new way. Our goal is to break down the barriers between people and technology to make it more accessible”
The controller is now available in the Best Buy stores in the United States and on Amazon.co.uk.
Furthermore, on Airspace Store – http://airspace.leapmotion.com – you will find more than 75 applications created by the Leap Motion developers, including a free plug-in for Maya.
The Leap Motion costs 79.99 $ (or 69.99 £ on Amazon UK) and is able to monitor the movement of all fingers with accurate precision. The device works with Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8, Windows 7 or 8 and requires an Intel Core ™ i3 or AMD Phenom ™ II processor, 2 GB RAM and a USB 2.0 port.
