Leap Motion Launches VR Headset Mount For Its Hand-Tracking Controller

Today Leap Motion is launching a mount for its PC peripheral that lets you track your hands in virtual reality applications by attaching it to the front of the Oculus Rift or other headsets. This mount launches simultaneously with a new version of Leap Motion’s SDK that enables the device to keep track of your hands from headset’s perspective rather than below.

The company hopes that developers will integrate Leap Motion into virtual reality experiences rather than (or in addition to) keyboard and mouse or controller input. “If virtual reality is to be anything like actual reality, we believe that fast, accurate, and robust hand tracking will be absolutely essential,” Leap Motion co-founder David Holz writes in a blog post.
