Note: This is a general guide for Windows VR developers using the VR Developer Kit from Leap Motion. Specific setup guides for the Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift DK2, and HTC Vive are available.


1. Attach your kit

Attach the VR mount to your headset. It should be aligned as closely as possible with your eyes.

Use the free cable extender bundled with the mount to connect the controller directly to the computer.


2. Set up your controller

Download the Orion SDK and run the installer.

Right-click on the new Leap Motion system tray icon and click Settings. Go to the Troubleshooting tab and select "Recalibrate Device. We recommend a calibration of 90%. (If you experience issues with calibration, watch this video.)

On the General tab, check Allow Images. This allows apps to access the infrared video passthrough.

3. Explore the Gallery

Our latest demos are built on the SteamVR integration in Unity, and as a result should work on most headsets, such as Varjo and Pimax headsets.


4. Build an integration

Depending on which headset you're using, you may need to develop your own integration for the Leap Motion Controller and your preferred game engine. Our LeapC documentation and integrations for Unity and Unreal cover the fundamentals you need to get started.

5. Share your project

Post in our community forums and share your integration on our Gallery.
