Pinch Blink Teleportation and Snap Turn

This WebXR hand tracking experiment explores an evolution of the classic teleportation method.

In particular, the prototype includes the following mechanics:

  • The WebXR poses toggle the teleportation and the snap turn UIs visibility to enable or disable the locomotion
  • The teleportation UI provides 1st-time users with information on how to use this pinch-based locomotion method
  • The snap turn UI provides visual feedback by animating its color and position when the hands hover over it
  • The turn mechanics include also the sequential snap turn (pinch + drag and hold) and the quick turn (180°) features

Demo Video

The video below shows the Pinch Blink Teleportation and Snap Turn locomotion method controlled by hand tracking interactions. Moreover, the UI panel listen to pose events to log in VR whether the locomotion is enabled or disabled.
