The HP Envy 17 gets Leap Motion and not much else Video Transcript
Hey, guys. I'm Sharon Vaknin and we're taking a first look at the HP Envy 17 with Leap Motion. Now, HP introduces computer to its line-up last year. But now they're adding Leap Motion built in to the PC. And what that gets you is touch-free controlling of the computer. Now, HP hasn't done anything special to adapt its software to Leap Motion, but Airspace, that's Leap Motion's app store, does come built-in. The screen is 1080p. You've also got an HDMI port, two USB ports and an SD card slot. Now, we don't know what the base configurations for this computer will be, but we do know that you can go up to a 2-terabyte hard drive, up to 16 gigabytes of RAM and up to an i7 processor. The screen is full HD at 1080p and you'll be able to choose from touch screen and non-touch versions. Now, because Leap Motion is built in to the PC, you're going to have to keep it connected to power. Otherwise, you can expect very short battery life. The HP Envy 17 with Leap Motion will come out October 16th starting at 1,049. For cnet.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin.
Some in line for Apple's latest phones are getting paid $14 an hour to hold a spot, the PlayStation 4 gets a mobile companion app, and HP is putting Leap Motion into the Envy laptop.
Motion control company Leap Motion is announcing a new product that lets users interact with their computers by pinching, drawing and wagging their fingers in front of the screen. Senior writer Daniel Terdiman brings you a behind the scenes demo.
In the four months since the release of the Leap Motion controller, the company has expanded its app store to include more than 140 that use the finger and hand movement controller. Leap Motion's VP of Marketing Michael Zagorsek shows us three apps created for the 3D, non-touch experience.
The Leap Motion controller for desktops and laptops is now available. Though many have visions of "Minority Report," the technology is much more about precise finger and hand movements than sweeping body gestures. Leap Motion's Eric Lau talks about the "secret sauce" and demonstrates what the device can do now that apps have been created for the 3D, nontouch experience.
HP's Envy 14 Beats Edition is a black-clad copy of the well-built standard Envy 14, available (at least for now) without a price premium.
The controller that allows you to bypass your keyboard and mouse in favor of using your fingers as a computer interface will soon recognize users' whole hands. Leap Motion's cofounders David Holz and Michael Buckwald preview the upcoming upgrade plus a new modeling app that aims to let you create 3D objects intuitively.
Use these tips to improve the Leap Motion Controller's performance by making it more responsive, accurate, and tailored to your needs.
We take a quick look at the HP Envy x2's durable, sexy design and its included keyboard.
HP's updated Envy 14 is a well-built high-end laptop with impressive components and a surprisingly reasonable price.
Leap Motion is sending out thousands of developer kits in the next two months. And that means gesture technology will soon be right under your fingertips.
