Grabbable Objects

XR Rig/Left(Right)Hand Controller
Uncheck Anchor Control which attaches an anchor point to an object when moving joystick (a ball will move closer)

Enable Hide Controller on Select = hands will disappear when holding an object
Uncheck Anchor control which attaches an anchor point to an object when moving joystick (a ball will move closer)

Fine-tuning Throwing a Ball

For the ball, under Sphere Collider, look at Material. You can choose a Material available in your project or create your own Physic Material. I picked PhysicsMaterial_Bounce_Low for a baseball

To prevent a dropped object from going through the floor, in Rigidbody component, for Collison Detection set to Continuous Dynamic

To get the ball to respond to force applied by your hand, set Movement Type to Kinematic

So the object (baseball( isn’t jittery, in the XR Grab Interactable component, enable Smooth Position and Smooth Rotation properties (you can adjust these settings with sliders)

Add an object with a handle

– adding an object that will be grabbed at a very particular point and orientation

Need more than just recipes

While my oldest child is happy that I am archiving all her favorite dishes, I have decided I need to have more than just recipes on this site.

In the spirit of this decision, this is my first non-food related post.

Since my teens, I have collected quotes.  Here is one of my favorites from Frank Kafka:

“We are as forlorn as children lost in the woods. When you stand in front of me and look at me, what do you know of the griefs that are in me and what do I know of yours. And if I were to cast myself down before you and weep and tell you, what more would you know about me than you know about Hell when someone tells you it is hot and dreadful? For that reason alone we human beings ought to stand before one another as reverently, as reflectively, as lovingly, as we would before the entrance to Hell.”

Family Cook Book

So the section for the family cook book is coming along nicely.  As weekly menus are planned, the accompanying recipes are being added. Our eldest daughter really wants to make sure that the recipe for Chinese egg rolls are added.  We make them ever year to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
