    Identifying the left and right controller
    1. On the top of the handle, the controllers are marked with L for left and R for right
    2. The controllers can be visually identified by the side which the handle is located. Orient the controller such that the LED is directly in front of you, in line with your eyes. If the handle is on the right side of the controller, it is the right hand controller. Similarly, if the handle is on the left side of the controller, it is a left hand controller.
