What is the Leap Motion Controller?

The Leap Motion Controller is a small USB device that plugs into your computer. Using LED lights and camera sensors, the Leap Motion Controller scans an area of roughly 8-cubic feet (2x2x2) above the device. It tracks both hands and all 10 fingers as they move through the open space between you and your computer, the special software detects your hands and fingers and translates the data into information for your computer.

With the release of the Orion software, the Leap Motion Controller can now be used with VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
