Hand tracking with Varjo headset

Varjo’s VR-2 Pro is coming with built-in hand tracking technology from Ultraleap. It allows user to use hands without any physical controller and reach out with hands into VR world. Motions like pinching, grabbing, and interaction with objects add new level of immersion you could accommodate in your applications.

 

Setup

In order to enable hand tracking module, you must download Leap Motion Orion SDK (coming soon) from our downloads page. It is important that you download Leap Motion Orion SDK from Varjo website, as we provide software version that was specifically tailored for VR-2 Pro and was stripped down from all the unnecessary components.

When both the Varjo and the Leap Motion Orion SDK are installed, and the VR-2 Pro is correctly connected you should see Ultraleap icon turning green in Windows dashboard:

 

Developing with hand tracking

You can develop hand tracking support for Unreal engine, Unity, or natively. Refer to the Ultraleap documentation to follow up to date guides on integration and best practices of using hand tracking in VR.
