No idea how to interact with items...

I would really like to make this item interface where when you pick up a item you can inspect it, rotate it .(like in the game “Gone Home” IMAGE: Imgur: The magic of the Internet ) Been stuck on this for days. Any help would be appreciated.

Check out input.getmousebutton or input.getkey in the scripting documentation as for the interaction use a raycast from the camera and see if it hits the inspectable object from there you can use the input to control rotation etc.

doesn’t work…

Look into Quaternions and Euler Angles, also local and world rotation. You’ll have to rotate the object using transform.rotate() according to the input.
