Detect touches to 3d objects in the Magic Leap Simulator with Unity //more detailed tutorial available at:

  1. Create New Magic Leap Project in Unity

  2. Import the libs folder from the Magic Leap Unity Examples package

  3. Create a 3d Cube (Assets > 3D > Cube)

  4. Set the position of the cube to 0,2,3

  5. Set the rotation to 0,65,0

  6. Add a Rigidbody to the cube

  7. Disable Use Gravity on the Rigidbody

  8. Add the TouchCubeCollider.cs to the cube (Add Component > Scripts > TouchCubeCollider.cs)

  9. Create an Empty Game Object and rename it to Gestures

  10. Add the GestureDetection.cs script to Gestures

  11. Create a 3d Sphere as a child of Gestures

  12. Reset the transform on the sphere

  13. Set the scale to 0.2, 0.2, 0.2

  14. Add a Rigidbody to the sphere

  15. Disable use gravity

  16. Set the public variable Finger on the Gestures script to the sphere in the unity inspector.

Play! You should see a white cube in the simulator, set the gesture to either the L or the Finger gesture and alter the positions to 0,2,2.4 to touch the cube. The cube should turn blue and react to the collision by moving and rotating.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
