Free Leap Motion Sensors start to Ship for Developers

After the Leap Motion Sensor was first mentioned in summer 2012, Leap Motion announces that the first round of 10000 free motion sensors start to ship to the developers within the next days. The Leap 3D Motion sensor system is capable of tracking ten fingers in realtime. Leap Motion claims that their 3D Motion Sensor is 200 times more accurate than existing technology. The idea for this technology was invented during a Phd work in mathematics from UNC and while studying in fluid mechanics. After four years of research and many iterations of hardware, the Leap was finally finished. The Leap is an optical system that tracks your fingers with infrared LEDs and cameras in a way unlike any other motion control tech.
