HP Debuts First PC With Built-In Leap Motion


HP made a deal with Leap Motion a couple of months ago, and we’re now seeing the first fruits of that partnership in the Envy 17: a big laptop with Leap’s motion control technology built in

As a PC, the Envy 17 is an outlier — its 17.3-inch screen pushes the upper limit of portability, but no doubt makes it easier to embed the Leap controller.
