I've had a leap motion for a while now, and recently a project surged for which the Leap would be perfect.
Had not played with it for a bit, so when I opened the controller it asked to upgrade the firmware. After that the Leap motion stopped to respond.
I was a V.06.05 board version.
This is what I had to do to fix it:
Download the firmware reset tool from this link
mkdir /tmp/lm cp -r /Volumes/LM_FirmwareReset_Mac/ /tmp/lm cd /tmp/lm chmod 775 FirmwareReset ./FirmwareReset
Then just follow the instructions:
