Best Buy to carry Leap Motion

The Leap Motion's motion-sensing PC controller will be in all of Best Buy's (BBY) U.S. stores by late this quarter, according to the San Francisco-based startup. Best Buy's website will start taking U.S. pre-orders for the $70 device in Feb. The controller has a 150-degree field of view and tracks individual hands and all 10 fingers at up to 290 frames a second. The device is similar to Microsoft's (MSFT) Kinect motion-sensing controller for its Xbox 360 game console. Best Buy shares rose 1.7% to 14.67.
