Ultraleap was formed when Leap Motion and Ultrahaptics came together in 2019. We’ve united the world’s most advanced hand tracking with the only haptic technology that creates the sensation of touch in mid-air. With this move, Ultraleap is in a unique position to revolutionize not just mid-air haptics but spatial interactions more generally.
