Setting Up Leap Motion for Python
In the previous chapter you saw how to install the Leap Motion SDK on a Windows computer; now we will work on setting up the Leap Motion SDK for Python. First we need to install some important Python updates that are necessary so that your Leap Motion will be recognized and you’ll be able to interact with it. It’s important to note that the Python installation that works with Leap Motion version v1 is Python 2.7. In this chapter we will first show you how to set up the Leap Motion for Python and then introduce some simple programs that will demonstrate how the Python language works with the Leap Motion sensor.
