License: MIT version


Hand Physics Toolkit (HPTK) is a toolkit to implement hand-driven interactions in a modular and scalable way. Platform-independent. Input-independent. Scale-independent. Can be combined with MRTK-Quest for UI interactions.


A ready-to-go project is available at HPTK-Sample.

Main features

  • Data model to access parts, components or calculated values with very little code
  • Code architecture based on MVC-like modules. Support to custom modules
  • Platform-independent. Tested on VR/AR/non-XR applications
  • Input-independent. Use hand tracking or controllers
  • Pupettering for any avatar or body structure
  • Scale-independent. Valid for any hand size
  • Realistic configurable hand physics
  • Define strategies to deal with tracking loss
  • Physics-based hover/touch/grab detection
  • Tracking noise smoothing
