February 27, 2013|By Salvador Rodriguez

Leap Motion has announced it will begin shipping and selling its computer motion sensor control this May.

The company made waves last year when it introduced the control, which shares the company's name, with a series of YouTube videos showing users controlling their machines much like the way video game players use the Xbox Kinect motion sensor.

Despite originally setting and missing a January deadline, the Leap Motion will start shipping to users on May 13. It will also go on sale at Best Buy stores a few days later on May 19.

The company said users interested in buying the device, can pre-order it from Leap Motion or now for $79.99 plus shipping and taxes.

The company also said that users who pre-ordered their device before Wednesday will receive the Leap Motion for the $69.99 price they were promised.

“We’re honored and humbled that hundreds of thousands of people have joined Leap Motion’s global community of developers, pre-order consumers and business partners,” said Leap Motion co-founder and CEO Michael Buckwald in a statement
