Exposes hands as an XrInputSource for use during a WebXr session. When hands are detected, this allows the API to expose them as the "hand-tracking" type, which can also allow exposing a fully-articulated hand model.


XR systems support tracking of users' hands to allow direct interaction and manipulation of virtual objects in XR applications. This feature provides sites an interface through WebXR to make use of these system hand trackers in a standardized way.
