7/25/2014Controls for non AR mode are currently based on the control of tripod-like software camera. In AR mode, that is the individual's natural problem, which auto shuts off when the user lies down. Regular mode's camera should, instead, rotate about two axes without the limitation of that camera. Including a set of axes or something would be a nice option.
