WHAT THE BUTTONS DO

Track pad - generally used for tracking locations or for making selections within a game.

- used for tracking accessible areas to visit (when in The Lab, The VR Museum, or Destinations), holding down the track pad will show the scope of your environment or the areas you can visit, releasing it will transport you to the selected area.

- used for selecting tools or colors (when in Tilt Brush or PaintLab), swiping the track pad left - right will show the tools available in Tilt Brush, or the spectrum of colors available in PaintLab.
