Tracking Rigidbody Velocity in Asteroids VR

 ·   ·  ☕ 1 min read

In order to better track and debug in Asteroids VR I’d like to be able to track how fast the player is moving at any point in time. To do this we’re going to add a simple tracking UI that displays our current velocity in meters per second and kilometers per hour using a canvas with a single Text element in it.

In order to grab the velocity we can just pull out the magnitude of the Rigidbody’s velocity. Then to set this up we can calculate the our mps and kph values and assign the results to our Text object.
