After Leap Motion revealed a new software and hardware initiative this week called Orion, a new set of discounts have now launched. VRFocus reported earlier that the Leap Motion controller was now discounted at Best Buy, from $79.99 USD down to $39.99 USD. This discount didn’t include the virtual reality (VR) mount which allows the controller to attach to an Oculus Rift DK1 or DK2. Now the company has included the bundle.
Available via Leap Motions website the VR Bundle includes the Leap Motion Controller and the VR mount at a new limited time price. The VR Bundle will now cost $49.99 USD / €49.99 EUR including accessories. But this offer is only available until 12am PT (midnight tonight).
Leap Motion is a hand-tracking controller that allows users to use hand and finger movement to manipulate what they can see on screen. Since the arrival of VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) like Oculus Rift, developers have been experimenting by putting the device on the headset to control what they see in the virtual world.
With the arrival of Orion, that aims to deliver the fastest, most accurate hand-tracking yet to VR systems, Leap Motion are likely trying to sell through stocks of the current version before Orion launches.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Leap Motion and its new Orion system, reporting back any further announcements.
