The Leap Motion Controller from Ultraleap is a hand tracking camera module that captures the movement of users’ hands and fingers. It can be attached to VR/AR headsets, integrated with interactive kiosks to enable touchless interaction, used for productivity applications with Windows computers, or in VTubing.
Ultraleap’s world-leading hand tracking software is able to discern 27 distinct hand elements, including bones and joints, and track them even when they are obscured by other parts of the hand.
An accessory component, the VR Developer Mount, allows for easy, reliable, and consistent attachment of the device to virtual reality headsets. Unity and Unreal plugins together with our TouchFree application for interactive kiosks, OpenXR API layer and MRTK integration enable easy integration into existing workflows.
