Hi @Manos,

Nice to have you around :)

Of course, the controllers are already integrated in the system. If you use the VR-Helper you will have them automatically integrated in your scene (including transportation control and a lot of other nice features). You can read about the experience helper here - http://doc.babylonjs.com/how_to/webvr_helper

If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to ask

Oh, I see :)

If this is the case - it will be hard to emulate those controllers. They are a part of the Gamepad API, and you will need to find a proper emulator that fits the newer extensions API (which also has the device pose, a main component in the vr controllers). I found this in a quick search - http://greggman.github.io/hft-gamepad-api/ , but this is more for the regular gamepads. The rest of the API will need to be emulated as well . The API is described here - https://w3c.github.io/gamepad/extensions.html

Hello @RaananW,

so I have been playing with the VR-Helper and I'm trying to catch the event of gazing on a mesh. Works fine when I gaze to any mesh but there is an error when I try to insert the onSelectedMeshUnselected event. This is the code:

var VRHelper = scene.createDefaultVRExperience();
VRHelper.enableInteractions();

VRHelper.onNewMeshSelected.add((mesh)=>{
   console.log('gazed');
});

VRHelper.onSelectedMeshUnselected.add((mesh) => {
   console.log('not gazed');
});

What am I missing here?
