Veho Mimi all-in-one HTPC controller looks like a gamepad

Posted in Home Theater by Reuben Drake on March 7th, 2011

Is your home theater still using the old mouse and keyboard combo? Well Veho has announced the “Mimi wifi Keyboard & Air Mouse with game controller.” It looks like an Xbox 360 gamepad controller, but this one has everything you want in an all-in-one computer-controller.

It features a motion sensor to control the mouse, separate buttons for left and right clicking and a range of about 33 feet. It’s compatible with both Windows and Mac via a USB dongle, but the customizable buttons will only work on a Microsoft OS machine. It will cost you about 150 dollars (or £90).

Sony outs DualShock 3 charging dock, candy blue gamepad

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2011

Sony has unveiled a new addition to its PS3 accessories. The DualShock 3 Charging Station will charge up two DualShock 3 or Sixaxis controllers without having to plug into an actively running PS3. There’s no word from Sony on how quick the controllers charge, but cradling the gamepads needs an adapter for each gamepad. There’s one included in the box.

There’s also a new candy blue color version of the DualShock 3. Both will ship to Japan on April 21 for about $30 and $67. We don’t know if that new DualShock 3 will arrive in the US, but most PS3 accessories ship to the US after they hit Japan.

SNK Neo Geo gamepad for PS3

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2010

It’s a good month for Neo Geo fans, with 10 Neo Geo classics hitting the PS3 and PSP complete with online multiplayer. And now SNK is releasing an updated version of the classic Neo Geo gamepad.

The gamepad is for the PS3 of course, with USB connectivity and a PS button in the middle. We wish it was available here in the US, but sadly this is only getting a release in Japan for 3,129 yen (about $37). Still, you can get one imported if you really want one for $45.

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on December 11th, 2010

A PC gamepad built into the bottom of a mouse? You bet. And it looks pretty decent too. It’s called the Shogun Bros. Chameleon X-1. There’s no price or shipping date just yet however. Specs include a 5-stage adjustable 1600dpi optical sensor with 125Hz polling rate that connects to your Windows PC over a USB dongle with 2.4GHz wireless.

It sports 14 buttons on the bottom, 7 on the top, and even has force feedback as well. Hopefully this device is really as good as it looks.

X-Cool CalculatorCalculators just aren’t cool. They have long been associated with nerds that wear taped-up glasses and pocket protectors. Well, this calculator should help you nerds up your game a bit since it looks like a video game controller. All of the buttons are in the right place.

This calculator has 27 functions, an 8 digit LCD display, and a two handed design. It won’t kill zombies, or cure geek acne, but it will kill math problems dead and make homework faster.

NES gamepad mouse is amazingly awesome

NES gamepad mouse amazingly awesomeLook at it. Just sitting there ominous like the monolith in 2001. Watching mankind since the dawn of man. Waiting. Waiting for a mouse manufacturer to run with this design.

Because right now, this beautiful work of art is just a foam mock-up. The first company to build this will have my money. I don’t care how much. I’ll just hand you my wallet. I don’t even mind that the D-pad is on the side.

BGP100 Bluetooth gamepad for phones

BGP100 Bluetooth gamepad for phonesAlthough we wish it were so, we have to face reality: Your cell phone is not going to become your primary portable gaming device anytime soon. The best it can hope for is offer a decent alternative to the DS and PSP, especially with the iPhone’s capability. But what about other powerful handsets that could prove to be decent gaming platforms, but lack the proper controls?

The BGP100 Bluetooth gamepad for phones aims to fill this void, and supports a bunch of smartphone platforms including Windows Mobile, PocketPC and Symbian UIQ. It features a special twisting design and you can attach the BGP100 to a wide range of phones as long as they do not exceed 55mm in width. If it turns out that your handset is too large for the BGP100, you can also use it as a standalone gamepad when folded up.

iControlPad gamepad on the way

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2008

iControlPad gamepad on the wayApple’s iPhone isn’t exactly a console, but it might do better if it had some actual physical inputs and stuff like this just doesn’t make it a gamer’s best friend. Sure, it has the touchscreen and tilt sensors, but without some buttons and a D-pad, the average gamer finds it hard.

Well, gamers have something to celebrate as the iControlPad case for the iPhone is heading to production. This is the final prototype. When released, it will be in black and those holes will have buttons for mashing. No word on any ship dates or even a price.

DIY gamepad attachment for Sony UX UMPC

DIY Gamepad attachment for Sony UX UMPC
Dan Middle bought Sony’s UX UMPC and found it to be severely lacking when it came to portable gaming. He did what any of us would have done, he took things into his own hands by hacking a cheap USB gamepad. The end result is a set of controls that make available all eight buttons with a single hand, while the other hand is free to aim with the UX’s mouse controls.

The gamepad has been attached to a CF dummy card, slotting into the UX’s CF port. He did some testing and found that it’s pretty decent to use. Vista even recognizes it as a gaming peripheral. I’m not sure if this spells trouble for the PSP and DS Lite, but it’s pretty cool. Video below.

Evergreen’s gamepad & computer mouse in one

Gamepad & computer mouse in one
This gamepad mouse from Evergreen might be the coolest mouse we’ve seen yet. It’s called The Genius Navigator and hidden inside, you will find a gamepad featuring six buttons, plus Turbo and Clear buttons, and a directional pad.

The 1600/800dpi USB laser mouse weighs 67 grams and is compatible with Windows Vista, XP and 2000. The Genius Navigator will cost you about about $33 USD. I suspect that both the gamepad and mouse don’t work all that well together, but like Peanut butter and chocolate, I do think it’s awesome that they put them together. I’d like to see them take it one step further and put a Nintendo DS in a mouse. That I would buy. Who am I kidding? I would buy this one, too.
