Project North Star

Categories:   AR

In the next posts I will be covering the building process of a Project North Star headset, the open-source augmented reality headset from Leap Motion. I am going to build the simplified optics version (3.1) with mount for the Intel T265 Realsense camera in order to give the headset 6 DOF, although I will be covering this more extensively in the 3D printing post. I have printed the 3D parts at home and I have ordered the mechanical parts, as well as the electronics and optics from smart prototyping.

If you are interested in the project and want to know more, you really should join the discord server.


The idea is to divide the process in the following posts:

  • 3D printed pieces.
  • Building process.
  • Manual calibration.
  • Automatic calibration.
  • Software.
