    Element.requestPointerLock()

    This is an experimental technology
    Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

    The Element.requestPointerLock() method allows to asynchronously ask for the pointer to be locked on the given element.

    To track the success or failure of the request, it is necessary to listen for the pointerlockchange and pointerlockerror events at the Document level.
