Leap Motion Starts Shipping its Gesture Controlling System

Leap Motion announces that it has begun shipping hundreds of thousands Leap Motion Controllers to people who pre-ordered them for $79.99. The company also launched its software, allowing people to control their computers with natural hand and finger movements. It also opened Airspace, the on-line store for people to buy, download and launch apps built for Leap Motion’s 3D interaction. At launch, the Airspace Store contains more than 75 applications built by developers in more than 20 countries.

"Today marks a tremendous milestone for the company, but we’re just getting started," said Leap Motion co-founder and CEO Michael Buckwald. "Leap Motion enhances the computing experience to allow people to do things in new and better ways, and we’re committed to breaking down the barriers between people and technology to make the future more easily accessible."

Meanwhile, GigaOm discusses its first experience with Leap Motion's platform and it seems to fail impressing the reviewer.
