Incredible Connection Carrying Innovative 3D Motion Control Device in All Retail Stores

Leap Motion™ today announced that Incredible Connection is now selling the Leap Motion™ Controller in stores throughout South Africa.

“We’re humbled by the opportunity to work with well-regarded and enthusiastic partners like Phoenix Distribution to make Leap Motion Controllers available through Incredible Connection retail stores,” said Leap Motion President and COO Andy Miller. “We continue to push aggressively to satisfy the substantial interest we’ve been fortunate to receive since the product was introduced this past summer.”

Since the Leap Motion Controller launched globally on July 22, people around the world have been using it to transform computers into a more interactive and immersive medium. The Leap Motion Controller allows people to use their hands in the air to experience new ways to play, learn and create, thanks to apps that have been created especially for Leap Motion’s technology.

App downloads from Leap Motion’s Airspace™ Store passed 1 million within three weeks of the Leap Motion Controller’s launch, and more than 25,000 developers have downloaded Leap Motion’s free software development kit to design applications that let users interact with their computers in fascinating new ways—from taking apart and exploring a molecule to controlling their favorite games with just the swipe of a finger.

“With Christmas around the corner, we wanted to bring this must-have piece of technology to South African consumers, and our long-term relationship with Incredible Connection provided the perfect platform to do so,” said Simon Campbell-Young, CEO of Phoenix Distribution. “Since its international launch in July, the Leap Motion Controller has been making waves, and with its extremely cost-effective price point, wide variety of applications and ability to work with both PC and Macs, I believe it will prove just as popular locally.”

The Leap Motion Controller works with computers running Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8, or Windows 7 or 8. It requires a minimum Intel Core™ i3 or AMD Phenom™ II processor, 2 GB RAM, a USB 2.0 port and Internet connection.

The Leap Motion Controller retails for R1299.00, including VAT, in all 67 Incredible Connection retail stores. The product is also available online at http://www.incredible.co.za/
