Creating an anchor from a hit test result

The following example starts with an XRHitTestResult retrieved by calling XRFrame.getHitTestResults(). After calling createAnchor(), the Promise resolves with an XRAnchor to attach a virtual object to that location.

hitTestResult.createAnchor().then((anchor) => {
  // add anchored objects to the scene
}, (error) => {
  console.error("Could not create anchor: " + error);
});
