Leap Motion™ today announced Best Buy Canada and Future Shop will be the first to sell the Leap Motion™ Controller in Canada. The retailers began taking online pre-orders today, and devices will roll out to all stores across Canada beginning October 15.

“Best Buy has been a great partner for us in the US, and we’re excited to now work with their Canadian divisions at Best Buy Canada and Future Shop to bring Leap Motion to Canadian customers beginning in October,” said Leap Motion President and COO Andy Miller. “It’s an ideal place for even more people to experience the magic of using just their hands in the air to play, learn, and create on their computers.”

Since the Leap Motion Controller launched globally in July, customers around the world have been using it to play games, learn in 3D, create music and art, and more. Users have downloaded more than 1 million apps from Leap Motion’s Airspace™ Store. Airspace now lists more than 100 titles, including 5 apps from Canadian developers: Corel Painter Freestyle, Photo Explorer for Facebook, Motion Hockey, Water Waves Screensaver and TVOKids Caterpillar Count.

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 $79.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop.
