VIVE Wave™ XR plugin provides three Interaction Modes:
- Gaze: Gaze is used for interaction.
- Controller: Controllers are used for interaction.
- Hand: Hands are used for interaction.
The Interaction Mode is controlled by VIVE Wave™ and developers cannot change the mode.
You can retrieve current interaction mode by using the following code.
using Wave.Essence; XR_InteractionMode mode = ClientInterface.InteractionMode;
VIVE Wave™ XR plugin provides an integrated component named InteractionModeManager. By using the InteractionModeManager, you can easily use the Gaze, Controller and Hand features following the Interaction Mode.
For example, you can – 1. See a gaze pointer and trigger events by gazing on objects in the Gaze mode, 2. Use controller models, beams and pointers to trigger events in the Controller Mode, 3. Use hand models, beams and pointers to trigger events in the Hand mode.
If you meet some problems when using the InteractionModeManager, refer to Interaction Mode Notifications.
To use Interaction Mode and its related features, you have to import the Interaction Mode feature package. This package will be imported by default when you first time visit the Project Settings > Wave XR > Essence page.
The feature package will be imported at Assets/Wave/Essence/Interaction/Mode.
