Leap Mo­tion has cre­ated a cam­era-pow­ered hand track­ing sys­tem that re­places tra­di­tional con­trollers by al­low­ing you to use your hands in VR. The fast hand-track­ing tech­nol­ogy, lets users en­joy mul­ti­ple ex­pe­ri­ences and games with­out the re­stric­tions of a hand­held con­troller. It’s avail­able as a stand-alone sen­sor or an at­tach­able fea­ture to a VR head­set, such as the HTC Vive or Ocu­lus Rift. There are cur­rently only five VR in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing an anti­grav­ity game called Weight­less, Cat Ex­plorer (an ed­u­ca­tional tool for study­ing fe­line anatomy), and Blocks where you pinch, drag and drop to cre­ate shapes to build with or just fire them off into the abyss.
