The included parts are almost the same as those from Leap motion’s release 3.
We’ve also pre-cut, tapped, drilled, or otherwise prepared some of the parts that were originally specified as raw materials..

  • Springs: We’ve cut them into the exact lengths necessary for use.
  • Aluminum bars: We’ve drilled and tapped the holes with 0.45mm thread pitch, so you don’t need to do it yourself. We’ve also added a single threaded hole at the back end of the bar, allowing solid attachment of the end caps.
  • Gen 2 welding headgear: we’ve opted to include the Gen 2 version, as opposed to the Gen 3 specified in Leap motion’s current design. We’ve done this for pricing and availability reasons. As the Gen 2 only constitutes two dollars of the kit’s price, it won’t be a big waste if you opt to source the Gen 3 headgear locally by yourself.
  • Foam forehead padding: We’ve cut the foam into the right shape and size for the 3D printed parts, which should save you significant time and effort.
  • We’ve also included some zip ties, for all your cable management needs. After all, one can never have too many zip ties. Right?
