Video: HP laptop will be the first to come with embedded Leap Motion Controller

HP Envy 17 Leap Motion

Earlier this year, Leap Motion announced its intentions to partner with Hewlett-Packard in order to embed Leap Motion Controllers inside the company’s computers. Six months later, HP has revealed the first computer to come embedded with the gesture-control device — the HP Envy 17 Leap Motion Special Edition. The Leap Motion sensor has been embedded next to the touch pad and is significantly smaller than the standalone controller.

HP has also disclosed the specs for the Leap Motion laptop: a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB RAM and a 1TB hard drive. Adding to the potential methods of controlling the laptop, the Envy 17 also features a 1920 x 1080-pixel, 17.3-inch touchscreen. Users interested in making the most of the Leap Motion sensor can visit the Airspace Store, which features apps and games for the motion sensor.

The HP Envy Leap Motion SE can be preordered starting on October 16th and will retail for $1,049.99. A video of the laptop in action follows below.
