While touch-screen technology works well on ultra-portable gadgets, it is clear that its efficiency gets lower as the display gets bigger. In a bid to provide its customers with innovative motion-sensing technology that is compatible with Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 8 operating system, Hewlett-Packard has embedded Leap Motion sensors into the keyboards that come bundled with desktops and AiO PCs.

HP has launched the latest generation of embedded Leap Motion technology with eleven HP desktop and all-in-one platforms. Now for sale on hp.com, these systems are available with keyboards featuring built-in Leap Motion sensor technology. Following the release of the HP Envy 17 Leap Motion SE notebook, it’s the latest step in our ongoing partnership with HP to bring Leap Motion into more spaces than ever.

Through hardware optimization and innovation, Leap Motion engineers were able to design a micro sensor that’s only 3.5 millimeters in height, which is also now embedded in HP’s newest keyboard.

Each computer comes with Airspace and the Leap Motion software preinstalled, along with some great free bundled apps to get started. With these new embedded technologies and over 140 apps in the Airspace Store, there’s never been a better time to reach out and explore the possibilities of touchless interaction.

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 controller will be able to control the operating system as well as specially-built apps.

This is aimed at the consumer market in other words the low end or bottom low profit market. The high end profitable commercial market will shun these for the next 10 years or so. This is playing into one OS manufacturers demands. As soon as another OS becomes the preferred business flavor it will be a lost cause and a crowded non profitable market segment/
