Today we’re excited to announce the opening of our new design research studio in London with visionary VR/AR filmmaker Keiichi Matsuda, who will lead the new office and assume the role of VP of Design and Global Creative Director.

Explorations in VR Design is a journey through the bleeding edge of VR design – from architecting a space and designing groundbreaking interactions to making users feel powerful. Art takes its inspiration from real life, but it takes imagination (and sometimes breaking a few laws of physics) to create something truly human. With last week’s […]

With hands in mobile VR just around the corner, we’ve been working hard to redefine our core user experience. We’ve also needed to make some clearcut decisions about how people access Leap Motion content.

Creating a sense of space is one of the most powerful tools in a VR developer’s arsenal. In our Exploration on World Design, we looked at how to create moods and experiences through imaginary environments. In this Exploration, we’ll cover some key spatial relationships in VR, and how you can build on human expectations to create a sense of […]

This week, we’re excited to share our latest milestone on the road to truly compelling mobile VR. We’ve joined forces with Qualcomm Technologies to combine their Snapdragon 835 mobile platform with our embedded hand tracking technology so that people can interact with mobile VR content using their bare hands.

This week we hit the CES showfloor in Las Vegas with two missions: share our Mobile VR Platform with the world and play “spot Leap Motion in the wild.” Spawn a block in midair, punch it into the ether: "This is brilliant… it's amazing… my wife should try it!" – Jeff Regan #VR #CES2017 pic.twitter.com/dPeNsfZ5fr […]

Explorations in VR Design is a journey through the bleeding edge of VR design – from architecting a space and designing groundbreaking interactions to making users feel powerful. Stories are how we make sense of the world. One of the most effective ways to draw a user into any experience you build is to provide […]

Explorations in VR Design is a journey through the bleeding edge of VR design – from architecting a space, to designing groundbreaking interactions, to making users feel powerful. Virtual reality is a world of specters, filled with sights and sounds that offer no physical resistance when you reach towards them. This means that any interactive […]

Explorations in VR Design is a journey through the bleeding edge of VR design – from architecting a space, to designing groundbreaking interactions, to making users feel powerful. What’s the most important rule in VR? Never make your users sick. In this exploration, we’ll review the essentials of avoiding nausea, positive ergonomics, and spatial layouts […]

Explorations in VR Design is a journey through the bleeding edge of VR design – from architecting a space, to designing groundbreaking interactions, to making users feel powerful. Last week, we saw how interactive design centers on human expectations. Of course, it also begins with the hardware and software that drives those interactions. The Leap […]
