Just played Brookehaven Experiment demo with Oculus Rift & Leap motion

Ever since I saw people playing HTC vive demos of Brookehaven Experiment (on youtube), I wanted to play it with my Oculus Rift.
I am experimenting with leap motion as a temporary touch controller stand in.

I hate using double sided tape or glue for sticking things to my expensive Oculus headset.
So it took me some time, but I designed a custom clamp http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1646781 for the non-stick mounting solution http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1460958   for leap motion.

I bought the Brookehaven Experiment demo that is on sale on Steam, and loaded it up to play with the leap motion mounted on my Rift headset. It felt awesome!
Though the controls are a little flaky, it felt nice to use my hands to play the game for the first time. I plan to try other HTC Vive specific games on Steam going forward. Wait for touch controllers is now a little more bearable.

I hope you guys try it too.

Cool... maybe I should put my printer to use one of these days.

edit: Your second link is a bit messed up, the parser somehow added the ' for' to it.

@twisteklabs- Does Leap Motion work well with the game Brookehaven?

how do you trigger the 'shooting' of the gun with leap?

@lovethis leap motion is not perfect as a controller. But it will be a lot of fun to you and others watching you.

@FrozenPea trigger in the default leap motion driver is mapped to index finger closing. That motion replicates vive wand trigger. However, I am thinking of changing the mapping to make unique finger and hand actions map to different buttons on vive controller.

@steveoz32 there seems to be a "order this printed" option at thingiverse.
