Leap Motion Opens Beta to Devs Ahead of July 22 Leap Motion Controller Launch
A host of compatible apps will accompany the release, it seems. Developers in the Leap Motion Controller beta program will be able to get busy working with the device for the next month or so. Leap Motion says that the number of developers is in the thousands, and they’ll be testing the controller and their software on Windows and Mac operating systems and working with Airspace, the Leap Motion “app discovery platform”.
Devs will be able to scroll and click, and on Windows they’ll be able to open and navigate apps in the Metro interface. There’s also an orientation tutorial, which will help developers get a sense of the Leap Motion controller’s range and scope.
Airspace home is the desktop launcher for Leap Motion’s apps (and so-enabled apps such as Google Earth), and users will be able to find and download apps the Airspace Store.
