What is the Leap Motion Controller?

The Leap Motion Controller allows you to use your hands to interact with your computer. All you need to do is plug a small USB device into your computer and, using LED lights and camera sensors, the controller will scan your hand and finger movements. Leap can also be used with Oculus Rift & HTC Vive virtual reality headsets.
