Best Buy opens orders for May 19th delivery
The Leap Motion Controller will start shipping to customers on May 13th, Leap has announced. The accessory works with Windows and Mac computers, and lets users control software using 3D hand and figure gestures. Leap opened up pre-orders for the Controller in May 2012, with a $70 pricetag; as of today's announcement, new orders will cost $80.
The company is promising to process orders based on when they were received. People who haven't yet bought a Controller can now also get one through Best Buy, though those orders won't ship until May 19th. The hardware will also appear in Best Buy outlets on that date.
