Introducing Smart Items

Smart Items allow creators to easily add interactive fun to scenes without needing to code. Just drag and drop items and then configure their behavior. You'll find Smart Items in the Item Catalog of Decentraland's Builder. They must be used as part of your creation to qualify for the Contest.
