Controllers are vital for immersing people into a VR application. The potential of VR is not met without them, namely controllers that provide six degrees of freedom (6DoF). With controllers, people can reach out and around the scene and interact with objects with their hands.

A-Frame provides components for controllers across the spectrum as supported by their respective WebVR browsers through the Gamepad Web API. There are components for Vive, Oculus Touch, Daydream, and GearVR controllers.
