Mount to attach the LeapMotion to the front of the Oculus RIFT Developer Kit unit. The Leap is angled downward at 30 degrees to capture more of what I think is the natural interaction space in front of the torso.


Print the mounting bar and the Leap enclosure separately. The bar clips into the vents on the sides of the RIFT, and the Leap enclosure slides onto the tabs in the center of the bar, with the open end oriented towards the side of the RIFT with the cable.

I printed in PLA on Replicator 2. Medium (MakerBot Slicer) setting with 1 shell and 10% infill, 225° C.

Sadly this does not work with the DK2. But the real Leap Motion Holder is a good alternative.

Fits nice, dont print it to fast, else you'll have to work on the slide.

I have a Rift-Mounted Leap demo for anyone who somehow manages to have an Oculus Rift, a Leap Motion dev kit, and a 3D printer (like I do ;) ). You can find it here: http://www.mtbs3d.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=17377http://www.mtbs3d.com/phpBB/vi...

Two cool toys & a 3D printer. Wait, three cool toys!
Does it all work together well?

I don't know! I've only just grafted the things together. Starting to play with Leap data in Unity over the next few days if I can find free time. But they're both awesome on their own, so it's hard to imagine the combo won't rock. The Leap seems to be particularly good at spotting fingers from underneath, so it'll be interesting to see how reliably the driver recognizes the hand from behind. Maybe we'll need a version tilted at 45-degrees, too.
