visionOS helpers

Fusion XR prototyping Add-ons

This module provides some components to help building vision OS application with Unity's Polyspatial, and make them cross-platform. It relies notably on the XRHands addon, to provide proper hand tracking synchronization and gesture detection in Polyspatial unbounded mode.

Spatial Touch

The vision OS platform provides specific gestures to interact with objects having a collider: touch, pinch, indirect pinch. Unity's Polyspatial exposes those moves, and the addon's SpatialTouchHandler class detects those interactions.

If a SpatialTouchHandler is in the scene, and an object interacted with as a component implementing ISpatialTouchListener, it will receive associated callbacks.

Grabbing with spatial touch

To be able to grab using the same components than used in the XRShared addon, the SpatialGrabber and NetworkSpatialGrabber allows to have an additional "hand", not tied to an HardwareHand/NetworkHand pair.

It is available in both the unbounded volume mode, to be able to grab from distance, and in the bounded mode, where regular hands are not present anyway.

Regarding "regular" grabs, that is when the hand are placed on the object, it is possible to either use the hardware rig grabbers, which use the hands position, or the visionOS spatial grabber. On the SpatialTouchHandler component, the hardwareRigGrabberDisabled allows to choose between the 2 options :

  • if hardwareRigGrabberDisabled is set to true (default), the grabbed object movement will be smoother: on visionOS, the hand bones are refreshed less frequently than the spatial touch position, so objects will jitter if they use the hands movements as a reference
  • if hardwareRigGrabberDisabled is set to true (default), the grabbed object will stay in sync with the hands, otherwise, there is a little position difference, as the grabbed object movement is not based on the actual hand position, but on the spatial touch API results. It can be relevant if the hand models are displayed.

Volume mode synchronization

For application handling both bounded and unbounded volume mode, it is important to warn remote user of the mode selected, for instance to make the avatar vanish while in bounded mode.

To do so easily, the VisionOsVolumeCameraModeSync synchronize the mode of the local user, if placed on their network rig. It also allows to easily hide all user renderers automatically while in bounded mode, with the hideAllChildRenderersInBoundedVolume option.

Volume mode change handling

The VolumeCameraConfigurationSelector class also offer a convenient way to change volume mode: enabling an object with this component will automatically change the Polyspatial's VolumeCamera volume configuration with volumeConfiguration, if it is not already the same. In addition, it can activate/desactivate some game objects, allowing to easily have volume mode specific game objects.

Cross-platform components

Aside from the grabbing behavior enhanced to support spatial grabbing, and the XR Hands, some tools help in building cross-platform experiences.

Touch

SpatialTouchable implements both ISpatialTouchListener and ITouchable, to react both to spatial touch, and to regular touch, working on all platforms.

SpatialButton is an enhanced version of SpatialTouchable, that can be used as a toggle button or a radio button.

UI

To have the similar behavior of a visionOS Window on all platform, the ConstrainedGrabbable class can be used to move grabbable windows in a similar way the windows are moved on visionOS (they "look" at the user while being grabbed, ensuring a proper positioning).

LineMesh

The LineRenderer component is currently not compatible with Polyspatial. the included LineMesh component offers a simple alternative, that creates a mesh.

The stored Point include a color property that will affect the mesh vertex colors. A sample shader, LineSG, compatible with Polyspatial, uses those vertex color info to render the mesh.

If some component relies on LineRenderers, the LineRendererToLineMesh offers a way to automatically feed a LineMesh with the line renderer info.

Automatic hand configuration

If the hands from the XRHandsSync addon are used, the VisionOSHandsConfiguration allows a quick automatic configuration of the hands for the Polyspatial vision OS platform.

The script:

  • ensures that even if the hands are not detected for a short duration, the grabbing triggered by finger detection in FingerDrivenControllerInput still continues
  • uses LineMesh to display the beam used by a RayBeamer component
  • applies a specific layer to all collider in hands, that should be removed from Polyspatial handled colliders, to be sure that the grabbing/touching collider are not spatial touched by visionOS (which is probably not desired)
  • ensures that in case of no detection of the hands, the hand representation components do not try to fallback to controller, as there are no hand controller on visionOS
