VRDevice.resetPose()

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage 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 specification changes.

The resetPose() method of the VRDisplay interface resets the pose for the VRDisplay, treating its current VRPose.position and VRPose.orientation as the "origin/zero" values.

After resetPost() has been called, future poses returned from VRDisplay.getPose()/VRDisplay.getImmediatePose() will describe positions relative to the VRDisplay's position when resetPose() was last called and will treat the display’s yaw when resetPose() was last called as the forward orientation.

The VRDisplay's reported roll and pitch do not change when resetPose() is called as they are relative to gravity. Calling resetPose() may change the VRStageParameters.sittingToStandingTransform matrix.
