Controller
This guide will show you how to use the Nreal Light controller and Nreal 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: Nreal Light controller and Nreal phone controller. The Nreal Light controller can be paired with a Nreal Light computing unit or a mobile phone through Bluetooth. The Nreal phone controller is only available when using the phone as Nreal Light's computing unit.

    Make sure the Bluetooth on your Neal Light computing unit/or Android mobile phone is on. (The Bluetooth on Nreal Light computing unit is on as default.)
  2. 2.
    Turn the Nreal Light controller power switch on. Long press the touchpad until the green light starts blinking.
  3. 3.
    Put the Nreal Light controller on the computing unit, and they will be paired automatically.

    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 Nreal Light Controller
Magnetically attach to the Nreal 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.
