Microsoft Revisits Switch Like Xbox Controllers

Microsoft began work on a project to create an Xbox controller that would be compatabile with phones and tablets. The project began in 2014 with a foam model followed by a 3D printed prototype. If this recent patent is any proof, it appears that Microsoft may be gearing up to bring this project to life. With Project xCloud on the horizon this could be a great solution for gaming on the go.

This design actually reminds me of a product I’ve owned for some time now by ipega. This controller stretches to adapt to both phones and tablets, but is not nearly as high quality product that we would get from Microsoft. Since Microsoft’s concept seperates into two distincitve parts that should make their design more portable!
