VRPose

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

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.

The VRPose interface of the WebVR API represents the state of a VR sensor at a given timestamp (which includes orientation, position, velocity, and acceleration information).

Note: This interface was part of the old WebVR API. It has been superseded by the WebXR Device API.

This interface is accessible through the VRDisplay.getPose() and VRDisplay.getFrameData() methods. VRDisplay.getPose() is deprecated.

Instance properties

VRPose.position Deprecated Read only Non-standard

Returns the position of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp as a 3D vector

VRPose.linearVelocity Deprecated Read only Non-standard

Returns the linear velocity of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in meters per second.

VRPose.linearAcceleration Deprecated Read only Non-standard

Returns the linear acceleration of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in meters per second per second.

VRPose.orientation Deprecated Read only Non-standard

Returns the orientation of the sensor at the current VRPose.timestamp, as a quarternion value.

VRPose.angularVelocity Deprecated Read only Non-standard

Returns the angular velocity of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in radians per second.

VRPose.angularAcceleration Deprecated Read only Non-standard

Returns the angular acceleration of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in meters per second per second.

Obsolete properties

VRPose.timeStamp Deprecated Read only

Returns the current time stamp of the system — a monotonically increasing value useful for determining if position data has been updated, and what order updates have occurred in. This version of timestamp has been removed from the spec — instead, timestamps are now returned when VRDisplay.getFrameData() is called — see VRFrameData.timestamp.

Examples

See VRDisplay.getFrameData() for example code.

Specifications

This interface was part of the old WebVR API that has been superseded by the WebXR Device API. It is no longer on track to becoming a standard.

Until all browsers have implemented the new WebXR APIs, it is recommended to rely on frameworks, like A-Frame, Babylon.js, or Three.js, or a polyfill, to develop WebXR applications that will work across all browsers [1].
