Wearing your AR Controller

There are two ways to wear your AR Controller - Point grip and Clutch grip. You can choose whichever feels most comfortable. Make sure that whichever way you decide to wear AR Controller, the USB port is facing towards the palm of your hand.

Point Grip Clutch Grip
In the Point grip AR Controller is worn on the index and middle fingers. This grip is best-suited to interacting with objects on the ground. In the Clutch grip AR Controller is worn halfway down the index and middle fingers. The Clutch grip provides precise control when interacting with the touchpad.

Calibrating your AR Controller

The way you wear your AR Controller changes how you calibrate it. It is crucial to hold your phone at head height whilst calibrating your device. This allows our software to understand your body position and to provide better tracking.

Point Clutch
Hold your phone at eye level, then point your hand forward and press calibrate. Hold your phone at eye level, then point your AR Controller straight at your screen and press calibrate.

Charging AR Controller

Make sure your AR Controller is charged before you use it. You can charge AR Controller using a micro-USB cable, which plugs into the port on the lower rear face of the device.

AR Controller takes around 90 minutes to reach full charge, although it can still be used for shorter periods after shorter periods of charge. In some AR Controller apps, the battery level of the AR Controller you’re using will be displayed on the phone screen.

Depth Control

The Showcase scene in the SDK provides different default interactions for moving objects towards and away from you -depending on your chosen grip.
