Title
(EN) Control apparatus and control program for determining how a controller device is worn
Abstract
(EN)

A control apparatus is used for a device that is set up assuming that the device is worn on a user's left hand or right hand, acquires given information from the device, and determines whether the device is to be worn on the user's left hand or right hand on the basis of the given information acquired.
