Leap Motion will find its way into OSVR virtual reality headsets this June

A snap-on faceplate will add 3D hand-tracking capabilities to the open-source VR headset's design, but you'll have to pay extra.

We might be entering the Age of Inputs when it comes to VR.

Hand-sensing input technology company Leap Motion is now an official launch partner with OSVR, the open-source VR headset consortium backed by Razer, Sensics, and many others. Leap Motion has been working on integrating its hand-tracking motion-sensing tech with virtual reality technology over the last year, and even demonstrated the capability with OSVR back at CES in Las Vegas this past January.

Now inventors of the liking stuff want to take over your phone calls, with an app imaginatively titled Phone. Facebook isn't even certain if it'll be releasing the app, but that obviously hasn't stopped the internet wringing its hands about the possibilities.
