Wikipad, Inc. makers of the Wikipad 7 Android gaming tablet has just announced the creation of a next-gen detachable game controller that will give mobile gamers a new console like experience while playing on their Android devices. It is called Gamevice and it will be a slim portable controller that will connect or fit into just about any Android device.
Gamevice has received a utility and design global patent which uses its flex bridge design to expand or collapse accordingly to fit Android devices. With this unique capability, Gamevice will transform your everyday Android smartphone or tablet into a video game console. It will feature dual analog sticks, both L1/R1 and L2/R2 analog buttons, an analog D-pad, and four analog action buttons; basically all the buttons that video gamers are familiar with, on board this controller.
There is still no word on pricing or availability, but if you happen to be heading to CES 2014, be sure to stop by Wikipad’s booth and check out the demo.
And if you happen to have a Windows 8 device, you’ll be happy to know that Wikipad is working on a version for Windows 8 as well. Support for other OS’s are also in the offing.
