An interesting look at Pico's new browser on the Pico Neo 3 Link, courtesy of @noerihuisman. It's based on Chromium and appears to expose both VR and AR modules for WebXR, though immersive-ar XRSessions don't actually appear to be supported.

Had to go through few extra hoops but… @aframevr running content on the @varjodotcom XR-3 via @OpenXR using its beta inside-out tracking alternative to SteamVR with base stations 👌

I've updated my Aframe XR starter with some useful changes🎉

* Switch to physx physics because it's faster and doesn't throw a warning every frame
* use movement-controls with the simple-navmesh component
* Add HTML-mesh for configuring the movement type

Fixed some math bugs and got my L-BFGS solver working, so it's super smooth now. I also added the ability to possess any rigged model, not just models designed to be avatars, so I can do this.

Got the beginnings of my avatar IK system working in . It's got a long way to go though. I can barely even dab.

Fun weekend project: implementing an in-world fly button toggle for Hubs so I don't have to exit VR, type /fly in chat, and then re-enter VR

I had a go at porting THREE's HTMLMesh to AFrame, it works with interactions, controllers work great, hand tracking in my environment on my Quest 1 is a little too unstable to use well but it does work.

This picture accurately captures my excitement when I got this all working. Pathtraced rendering in a multi-user environment, with networked face tracking. I've been working hard on a lot of cutting-edge experiments with @janusxr lately, it's time to start sharing

Dear VR community, eye tracking is now for us all!

Ps: if you like or make your own diy eye trackers give me a star on my repo (helps me out for school stuff 😊)!
