We have been following the story of Leap Motion for a while now. The startup company has been promoting its upcoming Leap PC add-on device since May of 2012, which it claims will enables highly accurate motion sensing interaction with a PC. Leap Motion has been taking a limited number of pre-orders for the Leap for $69.99.
Today, Leap Motion announced that the add-on would be bundled with a number of Windows 8 PCs made by Asus. Specifically, Asus will include the Leap device in the company's " ... upcoming premium All-In-One (AiO) PCs and high-end notebooks."
Cnet also reports that Leap Motion claims to be talking with other PC makers for similar bundle deals, although nothing has been signed at this time. The device, which could be one of the first major competitors to Microsoft's own Kinect for Windows add-on is still expected to launch sometime in early 2013, along with its own app store. Leap CEO Michael Buckwald claims that the company is already mass producing the Leap and is now making "between hundreds of thousands and millions of Leaps."
Leap Motion has also announced it has secured more funding for its startup. It has now raised an additional $30 million, bringing its funding total up to $45 million.
