Controller

This guide will show you how to use the XREAL Light controller and XREAL phone controller. The tutorial will demonstrate how to create apps using controllers as an interaction model.
Controllers provide a simple way for users to navigate in mixed reality. In the latest version, NRSDK supports two types of controlling methods: XREAL Light controller and XREAL phone controller. The XREAL Light controller can be paired with a XREAL Light computing unit or a mobile phone through Bluetooth. The XREAL phone controller is only available when using the phone as XREAL Light's computing unit.

  • Connecting the XREAL Light Controller
  1. 1.
    Make sure the Bluetooth on your Neal Light computing unit/or Android mobile phone is on. (The Bluetooth on XREAL Light computing unit is on as default.)
  2. 2.
    Turn the XREAL Light controller power switch on. Long press the touchpad until the green light starts blinking.
  3. 3.
    Put the XREAL Light controller on the computing unit, and they will be paired automatically.
  4. 4.
    If pairing is successful, the LED will stop blinking and become solid green. If you cannot complete this step, remove all other controllers in the Bluetooth record list and try again.
  • Charging the XREAL Light Controller
Magnetically attach to the XREAL Light computing unit. Battery power will be shared between the two whether the controller is on or off.
The lithium battery in the controller is not removable. Please do not attempt to open the controller. Damage caused this way cannot be fixed.
