I'm one of the earliest buyers of Leap Motion and unfortunately I've not used it in years (found my LM device just recently)
Anywho, I'd like to put it to good use this time but i am honestly so so confused with where you guys are at now with all the different Software like orion, v2, unity etc which I am not familiar with. I am just a user but seems to me that this device has become for developers only.
Anyway I went ahead and downloaded the first windows desktop software offered to me at
That installed fine and i was able to track my hand in the diagnostics -> proving my device is still fine.... but other than that, i can't find a decent and useful app that works. Even the demo apps like Handwave and particles are not working right giving errors. The Cat app seems to work fine but my hand is not oriented right in the software, it's upside down or something (i have my LM on the table facing up) .
Anyway what I would like really is just to get pointed in the right direction.
For a simple user like me who just want to put this to good use, even just for gesture control and virtual touch screen purposes, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?? WHAT software do i really need to install? v2? orion?
I mean, i really went thru the site and the more I read about the options the more i get confused. it's quite frustrating.
Please help, thanks.
