VRPose

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 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.)

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

Properties

VRPose.timeStamp 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 occured in.
VRPose.position Read only
Returns the position of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp as a 3D vector
VRPose.linearVelocity Read only
Returns the linear velocity of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in meters per second.
VRPose.linearAcceleration Read only
Returns the linear acceleration of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in meters per second per second.
VRPose.orientation Read only
Returns the orientation of the sensor at the current VRPose.timestamp, as a quarternion value.
VRPose.angularVelocity Read only
Returns the angular velocity of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in radians per second.
VRPose.angularAcceleration Read only
Returns the angular acceleration of the VRDisplay at the current VRPose.timestamp, in meters per second per second.

Examples

TBD.
