Babylon.js v3.1 supports Mixed Reality Spatial controllers

Recommended Posts

Hi beloved community,

We're proud to announce that we've got a full support of the Windows Mixed Reality headsets AND Spatial Controllers in v3.1 : 

We even have very cool animation of the controllers to enhance immersion.

We're also working on simplifying a lot the creation of WebVR experiences in Babylon.js via the VRHelper. Stay tuned. But using only 2 lines of code, we will soon be able to cover 80% of use cases :)

Wow, that's so great.  Can you elaborate on the 80%? :)  The work you did you getting GearVR working is fantastic.  I'm wondering about the GearVR controllers and other VR experiences like Cardboard.  Thanks again.  I'm going to get the alpha-2 update and do some experimenting this week...

The VRHelper will implement a default teleportation behavior and will display the 3d models of each solution. It will offer also a default picking mechanism that will test the meshes for actionable items. 

For the GearVR, yes, this is still planned to add support for the controller. :)

I've been wondering since I bought it if you could do 2 controllers since the device supports 2 Bluetooth devices... I just haven't bought a second controller to find out yet.

EDIT:
Confirmed that 2 gearVR controller support does not currently exist. Hopefully this is something that they will fix in the future.
