Asustek Computer, a leading innovator in personal computing products, will bundle three-dimensional motion controllers from Leap Motion with select new computers. In an industry first, Asus will bundle the 3D motion-control technology into new high-end notebooks and premium all-in-one (AiO) PCs powered by Intel Corp.’s code-named Haswell processors later this year.

"Our commitment to innovation and exceptional quality drive us to provide the best technology to our consumers. Leap Motion has developed an exciting technology that will truly enhance the experience our customers have with their Asus devices, opening a world of opportunity for personal use and business, from entertainment to architecture to education. We are proud to be one of the first companies to partner with Leap Motion," said Albert Wu, desktop division senior director at Asustek.

Leap Motion's technology – which relies on a special receiver hardware and custom software – can track movements to 1/100th millimeter 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. The partnership between Asus and Leap Motion brings the future of computer interaction – Leap Motion's incredibly fast and accurate natural user interface – to millions of potential consumers around the world.

"As OEMs adopt 3D motion control technology, they're spurring a rapid evolution in computer interface innovations and helping free the full power and potential of computing for consumers. This historic partnership with Asus is an important step in building global adoption of the new computing paradigm Leap Motion's technology offers. We're delighted that Asus shares our outlook on the future of human/computer interaction," said Michael Buckwald, Leap Motion co-founder and CEO.

A standalone Leap Motion device will ship to consumers early this year, and can be pre-ordered for $70 at the company’s web-site.
