We’re on a mission to redefine interaction.

 

The future is a place where infinite worlds are at your fingertips. One where you interact naturally and in 3D. One where you don’t need controllers or touchscreens.

Ultraleap was formed when Leap Motion and Ultrahaptics came together in May 2019.

We’ve brought together the world’s most powerful 3D hand tracking with the only haptic technology able to create the sensation of touch in mid-air.

We have a team of nearly 150 spread across the world, with locations in Silicon Valley and Bristol, UK. Our team includes world-leading experts in interface design, acoustics, machine learning and computer vision.
