Gamepad: vibrationActuator property

Non-standard: This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

gamepad.vibrationActuator.playEffect("dual-rumble", {
