W3C Invites Implementations of Pointer Lock

July 5th, 2016

The Web Platform Working Group invites implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of Pointer Lock. This specification defines an API that provides scripted access to raw mouse movement data while locking the target of mouse events to a single element and removing the cursor from view. This is an essential input mode for certain classes of applications, especially first person perspective 3D applications and 3D modeling software.
