Late last year, a report claimed that Apple had made a $50 million offer to acquire virtual reality startup Leap Motion. Now, The Wall Street Journal reports that Leap Motion has agreed to sell itself to UltraHaptics, a UK-based competitor.

  • The Leap Motion app is the software part that works with the hardware team to complete the whole hand-controller-Mac motion interaction process. Note that, Leap Motion comes with two additional apps such as Leap Motion App Home that provides you with easy access to all Leap Motion.

Leap Motion’s deal with UltraHaptics is said to be valued at approximately $30 million, according to the report. In 2013, the company was valued at as much as $300 million, having secured investments from numerous Silicon Valley venture capitalists.

While the company was an early player in the virtual reality industry, it struggled to keep up with the competition. Its entries into the hardware market received mixed reviews, with Leap instead putting a focus on its licensing business instead.

Today’s WSJ report corroborates last year’s report from Business Insider and says that Apple made two separate offers to acquire Leap Motion, including as recently as last year:

Apple Inc. approached the company twice, including as recently as last year, according to people familiar with the matter. Business Insider first reported the 2018 approach. Apple declined to comment.

Apple’s 2018 offer for Leap Motion was reportedly valued at between $30 million and $50 million. The deal reportedly reached the final stages, with Apple sending official paperwork. Ultimately, however, Leap co-founders David Holz and Michael Buckwald shot down the deal.

Holz specifically has made very anti-Apple comments on several occasions. The Leap co-founder told Apple representatives that Apple was no longer innovative and said its technology “sucked.” He also reportedly referred to Apple as “the devil.” These comments are believed to have played a role in the collapse of Apple’s acquisition of Leap.

Holz will reportedly join UltraHaptics as part of the deal, while Buckwald will depart the company. UltraHaptics will also reportedly absorb Leap’s engineering staff of around a dozen people, as well as its patents and other intellectual property.

The Leap Motion Controller is a small device that enables you to use your hands’ motions to control your computer in an alternative and novel way with the help of its advanced motion sensors (2 cameras and 3 infrared LEDs).

The Leap Motion Controller enables you to use your hands for doing almost everything on your Mac, from reading articles, browsing the web, flipping through photos, drawing and painting with your hands, to sculpting, molding, stretching and building 3D objects.

In order to use the controller, you must first install the Leap Motion application on your Mac. The Leap Motion app is the software part that works with the hardware team to complete the whole hand-controller-Mac motion interaction process.

Note that, Leap Motion comes with two additional apps such as Leap Motion App Home that provides you with easy access to all Leap Motion applications, and the Leap Motion Orientation app that will help you lean the basic behavior movements for the controller.

After the installation, Leap Motion will take an inconspicuous place in the status bar menu. The menu bar item is specially useful for setting up and customizing the way you interact and with the Leap Motion Controller, and how the controller itself interacts with your computer.
