Leap Motion recently announced the world’s most accurate 3D gesture control. With .01 millimeter sensitivity and ten-finger tracking, the Leap is years ahead of its time, and will fundamentally change how humans interact with computers. Watch our one-minute demo video and decide for yourself: www.LeapMotion.com.

Since our launch, our video has had over 6 million views, we’ve been featured in well over 500 news publications, and we've had overwhelming interest from consumers pre-ordering our device and developers applying for our SDK. We are also collaborating with top-tier manufacturers who are planning to integrate our technology into millions of laptops, monitors, TVs, gaming consoles, tablets, phones, cars, robots, appliances, simulators, and much more.

We are developing a robust and easy-to-use SDK that will enable developers to build a wide variety of applications including 3D design, robotics, games, medical devices, bio imaging, education, art/music creation/presentation, just to name a few. This technology has the potential to disrupt all facets of technology and have dramatic world impact.


Currently we are hiring talented Engineers, Scientists and Designers who are passionate problem-solvers to help us tackle challenges in Computer Vision, Applied Math, Physics, Algorithms, Graphics, UX Design, Gesture Control, Machine Learning, Hardware Design, Driver Development, Photonics, and much more. We like people who think unconventionally and creatively, finding elegant solutions to problems that are yet unsolved.

We want people who share our passion for the Leap technology and the future that it will enable. You will be part of the core team that brings forward a world of innovation.
