We Tried Leap Motion's New Hand Tracking Module On Gear VR – UploadVR

Leap Motion is a young technology company that is perhaps best known at this point for what it sells at your local Best Buy. It’s a $79.99 virtual reality peripheral that can be mounted onto an Oculus Rift headset. This device then uses infrared scanning technology to detect the position of your hands in 3D space. The system communicates that information as input in a VR experience. It can even track individual fingers and has been well received by the immersive community so far. However, an $80 peripheral is not what the Leap team has in mind for the future.
