Because Touch is so 2012

Leap Motion, a soon to be new way to interact with your computer, is set to release “in early 2013.”

The eponymous company behind the motion controller announced yesterday that it’s secured a $30 million round of funding from existing investors. The company says the new funding will help scale manufacturing for the product’s release.

Via Leap Motion:

Leap Motion’s technology can track movements 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 290 frames per second.

Leap Motion has had tremendous demand for its groundbreaking technology since it was announced in May 2012, and more than 40,000 developers have requested Leap Motion developer units to begin creating applications that take advantage of Leap Motion’s unprecedented accuracy and speed. Leap Motion has sent more than 12,000 free developer units to developers around the world, and the Leap Motion controller will ship with an application store where developers can monetize their work and consumers can discover new uses for Leap Motion.

When launched, the controller will be available for PC and Mac, with Linux “on the agenda.”
