Leap Motion released a whole-hand motion-tracking controller back in 2013. In February, the company updated its software to better complement the upcoming VR headsets. Now, the company has released a more nuts-and-bolts product to make using its controller in VR easier: an official mounting kit for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
The Leap Motion controller needs to be mounted on the front of a VR headset to maintain an unobstructed view of the user’s hands. In the past, the company offered a number of DIY mounting solutions, including 3D-printing a mount for the controller or even duct-taping it to the front of the headset. While the new mount is more elegant that duct tape, it still requires adhesive, which might give some new VR headset owners pause.
Leap Motion says the mount was designed for the release models of the Vive and Rift, but that it will also work with developer kits for both those headsets. The mount is available for order in Leap Motion's store for $20.
