Expect some unique systems from HP this holiday shopping season
As we move away from the back-to-school frenzy and head into the holiday shopping season, HP revealed a number of new systems that could end up on wishlists. One of them is a fanless two-in-one detachable Ultrabook built around Intel's 4th Generation Core processor technology (in a word, Haswell). This is the first of its kind, though it's not the only system HP is blazing a trail with.
More testing is needed before shipping out the Leap Motion controller.
The Leap Motion gesture-based controller has the potential to finally deliver Minority Report-style computing, but we won't find out for sure until at least the middle of July. Leap Motion pre-orders for the flash drive-sized device kicked off in February of this year, and at the time, it was promised the units would be begin shipping out on May 13. With that date fast approaching, Leap Motion's developers thought it best to put push back the release a couple of months so that they can put the controller through some additional testing.
The flash drive-sized device, it is claimed, is the “world’s most powerful 3-D motion controller”
Even as Microsoft lets Kinect for Windows wither on the vine, San Francisco-based startup Leap Motion, Inc is gearing up to launch its first product: an eponymous motion-control device the size of a flash drive. Capable of accurately tracking finger movements to within a hundredth of a millimeter, the Leap Motion controller will begin shipping in May.
