UploadVR covered an interesting new feature on Meta’s Interaction SDK for Oculus, giving developers an easy way to add controller-free interaction like direct object grabbing, gesture detection, interactable UI elements, distance grabbing, and more into their games and apps.

Included in this is a teleportation system. UploadVR explains:

“To point to where you teleport you turn your hand to the side and extend your index finger and thumb while closing your other fingers to your palm. To perform the teleport, just pinch your index finger to your thumb. It’s somewhat similar to the pinch “click” used in the Quest system interface, but with your hand rotated.”
