Hand Rotation

Is there any way to get the local rotation or normal vector of the palm? I am currently able to detect the "raw" position and velocity of the hand, but doesn't seem we can access to the rotation. Thanks!

  • I am experimenting with different forms and gestures of interacting with holograms. I would like to compare the usability of rotating an hologram by pinching and rotating the hand vs. pinching and move to the left and right like the one is provided by the API. I personally find it more intuitive, effortless and easy to use but would be interesting to try with more users.
