VRTheatre can be controlled via Leap Motion (preferred), Gamepad, Keyboard and Mouse, or any combination of the three. To display the button mappings press the Y button on the gamepad, or press the H button on the keyboard for keyboard mappings. For Leap Motion Control, look down at the back of your left hand. You will notice a large blue orb. This is the Leap Motion control panel activator. To open the Leap Motion control panel, place your index finger from your right hand on the back of your left hand on the activator orb and hold for 1-2 secs. This will spawn the control panel tablet in your view. Press and hold the activator orb again to close the panel. You can also close the panel by pressing and holding the circular button on the bottom center of the panel.
