Emerging technologies are being developed at a rapid pace, driven by strong innovation in the hardware sector, resulting in an increase in the range of input devices that people can use to interact with computers and applications. Unfortutely, there are no established interaction standards or best practices when developing software for emerging technologies, and user experience suffers as a result. This paper presents the findings from an early case study exploring the experiences of a group of individuals when playing games using emerging technology: mely the Oculus Rift and the Leap Motion controller. This case study provides insight into the usability of the interaction between game and device.
