I think HP is serious about Leap Motion controller integration. Fresh from building the controller into its Envy17 laptop, the PC maker has now introduced a USB keyboard featuring the same technology.
According to Leap Motion, the keyboard is being offered with 11 of HP's desktop and all-in-one systems. Those include the Envy 700, the Envy Phoenix 810, the Pavilion 500, and the following all-in-one machines:
- HP ENVY Recline 23 Beats
- HP ENVY Recline 23 TouchSmart
- HP ENVY Recline 27 TouchSmart
- HP ENVY Touchsmart 23
- HP ENVY Touchsmart 23 SE
- HP Pavilion 23
- HP Pavilion 23 TouchSmart
- HP Pavilion 21 TouchSmart
Leap Motion says the systems are "now for sale on hp.com." All of them come with pre-installed Leap Motion software and access to the Airspace Store, where users can download a host of apps designed to take advantage of the controller's motion sensing capabilities.
You can find out more details (and purchase some of the aforementioned machines) here on HP's website. I don't see an option to purchase the keyboard separately—although of course, desktop users can already pair the stand-alone Leap Motion controller with their existing peripherals.
