Hello! Does anyone know if a leap motion controller would be legal for FRC2020?

Impossible to know as the 2020 rules have not been released. However, I believe similar controllers have been ruled as wireless before and thus not allowed as long as the rules stay the same. I would Q&A it after the season starts to be sure.

I’m not sure I see what the problem with it would be. It appears to have a wired connection, and runs based off cameras and vision processing. And it looks like its only $90, so not running into the $500 part limit. If that’s true, it looks legal to me (standard disclaimers about next year’s rules not being the same as this year’s). Do you have any specific reservations that you think might make it illegal.
