Leap Motion shipments delayed until July 28th

Leap has been accepting pre-orders for its motion controller for some time now, and has been promising a ship date of May 13th since February, but there’s now been a slight change of plans. The company has confirmed that it’s delaying those shipments until July 22nd. In a letter to pre-order customers, Leap CEO Michael Buckwald explains that the company has already manufactured over six hundred thousand devices and delivered twelve thousand to developers, and says “the reality is we very likely could have hit the original ship date.” But, he adds, “it wouldn’t have left time for comprehensive testing.” That’s now set to begin in the form of a beta test that will start in June, which will see developers who’ve already received a unit get a feature complete product, and other non-developers invited to join as well. Buckwald will also be taking part in an open Google Hangout tomorrow to discuss the move further — specific details on it are promised to be coming soon.
