Hand Tracking: Grabbing Objects

Let's have a look at how grabbing objects in VR using hand tracking works.

Hand Tracking Gestures

Hand tracking is great and fun to play around with but without custom gestures for inputs your options are pretty limited.

Hand Tracking Teleportation

Teleportation with hand tracking can be a tricky business. Check out how it can be implemented.

Hand Tracking Laser Beam & Widget

Use the hand tracking feature to spawn and interact with a widget.

Hand Tracking: Custom hand mesh

In this tutorial I covered how to use a custom skeletal mesh with the Oculus Quest Hand Tracking feature in Unreal Engine.

Hand Tracking Quick Start

This tutorial is a very quick start guide for hand tracking in unreal engine.

VR Weighted Objects Update

We keep going with implementing physics hands and grabbing objects with weight. In this video we implement grabbing objects with 2 hands.

VR Physics Hands & Weighted Objects

In this tutorial we take a look at implementing some physics based interactions. Hands and objects with physics and actual weight.

Bow and Arrow Update 2

In this video we keep improving the bow and arrow implementation by adding a bow animation and sounds.

Bow and Arrow Update

With this tutorial we improve the bow handling so that it can be controlled with both hands.

Bow and Arrow

Playing around with a bow and arrow in VR is definitely cool. Take a look at how it could be implemented.

Macro Timeline

The macro in this project works like a timeline that you can drag and drop in your blueprint. I use it a various projects and it's amazing.

Foreach Loop with Delay

This is a handy blueprint snippet I ended up needing in a few projects and I am happy to share it with you.

3D Widget in VR

How do you set up a 3D menu for VR? Here's a simple example you can use.

VR Pickup object from distance

How do you get started in implementing a pickup object from distance system? This video may help you with that. It's a simple system resembling the RecRoom pickup object system. Hope you enjoy :-)

VR Interactive Watch Menu

Let's create an interactive watch menu with some cool 3D buttons that actually do stuff. Enjoy!!!!

A Fisherman's Tail Crane

I loved and enjoyed playing a Fisherman's Tail. It's full of really fun interactions all very well implemented. I implemented a crane controlled by a control panel with levers just for fun. The levers implementation come from the VR Content Examples project.
