Hi there! I believe you're referring to the newRotation variable that Nick sets up. This is of type Quaternion and stores a the results of the Quaternion.Lerp function. As I understand it, this interpolates between two Quaternions and normalizes the result over a given time.

You can view more information on Quaternion.Lerp in this Unity documentation

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
