Objective: Understanding what Ray Interactors are and how they work!

What are Ray Interactors? Ray Interactors are used to interacting with Interactables at a distance. If you select one of the hands under the XR Origin game object, you will find the XR Ray Interactor.

Inside the inspector we have a plethora of options to look over. You can enable interactions with UI game objects.

Force Grab — Moves the object to your hand rather than interacting with it at a distance.

Anchor Control — Allows the user to move the attach anchor point using the joystick.

A visual representation of the Ray Interactors is when you play the scene you will see these beams coming from your hands. These are the Ray Interactors!

Don’t be afraid to dive into yours and play with the settings to create the perfect feel for your own Ray Interactos, and I’ll see you in the next tutorial!
