There comes a time in the life of a company to work with other partners from far away, as it makes perfect sense in this day and age considering how the world is a global village now. Leap Motion has decided to take the plunge in the Japanese market, and in order to do so without floundering around, they have managed to enlist the exclusive help of SoftBank in a partnership. This would mean that the Leap Motion controller will now have retail presence in 15 different countries across the five continents.
Leap Motion figured out that leveraging on SoftBank Group’s multi-channel reach as a leading telecommunications and internet corporation would be a good place to start – after all, why bother reinventing the wheel when existing tools are already in place? Leap Motion’s technology can already enable folks to use finger and hand movements in the air to play, create and explore in more natural and dynamic ways on computers and other devices, and Japan would be a key market for the company. After all, they have received their fair share of interest from Japanese developers and consumers, making it the third largest market for web sales of the Leap Motion Controller. Does this mean that we are in for some very exciting times?
