Hand-tracking on PCVR through Quest Link?

Mild-Dog
Level 5

There's a hand-tracking app on PCVR I've wanted to try for a while and I still can't seem to use it.

 

Is it possible through the Quest 2?

Unfortunately no. The weightless demo was made in 2014 as a demo of the Leap Motion, it can't work without one.

I think OculusSupport skipped their morning coffee again.

 

The application in question is for the Leap Motion. This is a hardware device with a proprietary software development kit. You have to have a Leap Motion plugged in to use it.

Currently the Leap Motion is going for about $110. https://www.ultraleap.com/product/leap-motion-controller/#pricingandlicensing

It's a pretty cool device (I've got one), it can do far better hand tracking than the Quest 2. However there's very little software that works with it, and it means you need another usb cable to your pc.

 

Oculus refuse to support hand tracking in their PC software (even with the Rift-S which could easily do it), the SDK only gives you controller and head tracking data, so no Oculus based game could do it.

 

Virtual Desktop (commercial program for wifi streaming) did add hand tracking from Quest 2 to PC, but I believe all its doing is controller emulation, I don't think it exposes fingers to SteamVR. If it did, it wouldn't be Leap Motion compatible.

So as of now, without throwing 110 dollars at Leap-motion, I still can't play the Weightless demo with my Quest 2?

I see. I was hoping that maybe someone could at-least make something like Revive where it tricks the leap motion SDK into thinking the oculus hand tracking fits.

 

Shame, it's such a beautiful demo too.
