Advanced motion-sensor technology developer Leap Motion will soon be launching Motion-Control for computers. The company has set a launch date at the end of July 2013 for its controller and, as of this week, it will be rolling out the next phase of its beta test, which will include an app store. The app will be launched for more than 10,000 developers.

Motion-Controlled app store launched by Leap Motion

In the meantime, the company is preparing for the big launch and it plans to open its portal to the public later in the week. The launch is intended to give the developers – who are interested in Leap but are not currently in the beta – the ability to get familiar with the developer tools of the Leap and plan for development as soon as their device arrives in July of this year.

For those who do not know much about Leap Motion, the Leap Motion Controller brings motion control to the computer, in a way similar to how Tony Stark interacts with his computers in ‘Iron Man’ movies. With the help of the controller, users can navigate through the Windows 8 Start screen by waving their hands in the air and also launch and play games on the PC without even touching the keyboard.

The Leap Motion Controller has the ability to track movement to a 100th of a millimeter.
