I bought this for £30 and after a very frustrating night of spending hours trying to get it to work properly, gave up and it now collects dust.

The idea is great, the execution... isn't. The tracking *appears* accurate enough in the demo where it shows your hands (although even here it has problems tracking individual fingers) - but as soon as you try to use another app, it all falls apart. Changing all manner of settings and re-running calibration etc appeared to make no difference - it just doesn't work very well.

I'd advise saving the £30 and putting it towards something that's more ready for sale - the only thing that may save this is Oculus Rift integration, but sine I'm waiting for the consumer one I can't try that yet.
Another option is £26.99 for a USB HP keyboard with leap motion built in:
waste of money, I got HP keyboard and the only reason I kept it is that keyboard it self is not bad. Leap motion is useless like chocolate tea pot or fire guard. PLEASE STAY AWAY.
Idea is good but it is rubbish to use waste of money even if it was priced at 1p
I've had a lot of joy from mine with the Oculus Rift. It's not perfect but it's still early days. I wouldn't get one for every day use, but for Oculus users it's pretty damn good.
Thanks, been wondering about these but been too lazy to research. Comments were just what I needed
bought one because of the hype when they were released. boxed up and sold a week later on eBay. Disappointing
Amazing way to waste £30. Cold as ice.
I've owned this for a while now. Used it a little but it struggles with closed hands. Works well with stereo goggles. Also seen this used in an elite dangerous control setup.
