Posting here pending creation of a channel dedicated to the Theta S
Ricoh should make the Theta S firmware support wired remote control via the USB port -- at least shutter release and video start/stop, ideally via an adapter compatible with standard radio remotes that provide two switch-to-ground circuits. This would greatly expand the camera's usefulness on a stick or pole.
The next step up could be a simple dedicated controller that supports basic camera settings. And full "tethered shooting" should be possible when connected to a PC or tablet.
A simple Bluetooth controller would be even better, but that would require new hardware.
