Smooth Teleportation

Prototype created to test Smooth Teleportation in A-Frame with different input devices.

I used standard animation to move the camera rig's position to any selected destination.
Then, by setting a fixed duration time, I was able to design “responsive” locomotion speed and simulate the “walking” or the “running” depending on how far the selected destination is.

For this experiment I used the following components:
• aframe-animation-component
• aframe-inspector-plugin-recast

To control entities and interactions programmatically I have registered my custom component aframe-smooth-teleportation.

I coded the first version of this experiment for Samsung Gear VR and its 3DOF controller.

Then I also coded a version of the same experiment for standard Desktop.
