With Leap and Windows, the company said in a blog post, "You'll be able to browse the Web and interact with your computer just by moving your hands and fingers in the air. With Leap Motion technology and Windows, you can do everything that's possible with multitouch inputs -- without actually touching anything. This also means that existing applications in Windows 7 and 8 will respond to your natural hand and finger movements."

In the post, Leap Motion promised to release video of the system running on a Mac soon. Originally slated to be released this month, the Leap system is now planned for a July launch .
