Gaming controls for your smartphone
- Turn your smartphone into a portable gaming system
- Compatible with a host of emulators to play your old favorites
- In iCade mode you can play over 30 App Store titles
We here at ThinkGeek are responsible for turning your iPad into an arcade system with the iCade. (And to think, it started as an April Fool's joke!) And now, we've found the perfect portable companion - the iControlPad. Using the iControlPad, you can wirelessly connect with your smartphone and turn it into a handheld game console.
Your iControlPad is compatible with any device that uses Bluetooth, including smartphones, computers, tablets, and consoles. It functions as a mouse, keyboard, HID joypad, and even emulates our ThinkGeek iCade!
The flash chip inside means that the firmware for the iControlPad can be upgraded and new features added as the years go on. The built-in 1350mAh battery powers the controller but can also connect to your phone directly and boost its battery life.
Best of all, iControlPad can play iCade games straight from the App Store without jailbreaking or (for those of you with a little more phone-fu) it will run emulator software so you can play your favorite classics. Android users will find hundreds of compatible apps in the Market.
iControlPad's design is able to securely hold just about any smartphone, no matter the size or shape. It may even fit your phone while its still secure in its case, depending on the model! No need to worry about upgrading your phone and ending up with a useless accessory; the iControlPad will be with you and all your phones for years of gaming.
