Leap Motion today announced it will launch its Leap Motion Controller exclusively in all U.S. Best Buy brick-and-mortar stores and online this spring. The Leap Motion controller will be available for pre-order online at BestBuy.com beginning in February, and Leap Motion will also continue taking pre-orders directly at LeapMotion.com.
Leap Motion’s technology can track movements up to 1/100th millimeter—smaller than the tip of a pin—with no visible lag time. The Leap Motion controller has a 150-degree field of view, and tracks individual hands and all 10 fingers at up to 290 frames per second. The Leap Motion controller measures approximately 3 inches long, 1 inch wide and ½ inch thick.
“Finding a major retail partner for our North American launch was a critical component to our strategy, and Best Buy was the obvious choice,” said Leap Motion President and COO Andy Miller. “Best Buy’s market leadership and extensive store distribution network, combined with the product floor space and dedicated marketing promotional plans, represents an incredible opportunity to bring the Leap Motion controller to a massive consumer audience.”
