Drone Controller

Drone Controller

If the last few years have been marked by the release of ever more advanced games for iOS and Android, then perhaps 2012 will be the year that the controls catch up to the games. The Drone Controller ($65 and up) is a good start. This sleek, open-source controller will link up with your iOS, Android, or PC device via Bluetooth, and will offer dual analog joysticks, a digital G-pad, six face buttons, two shoulder buttons, a rechargeable battery, and an open source SDK for developers to take advantage of the advanced controls.

  • iCade 8-Bitty

    Forget those ridiculous-looking black add-on smartphone controllers — if you're really looking to add some portable, real-world controls to your gaming experience, pick up the iCade 8-Bitty ($25). Sporting an eerily familiar retro rectangular design, it offers up a D-pad, eight buttons, Bluetooth connectivity, and compatibility with any and all iCade games for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Coming later this year.

  • iCade Jr.

    Remember the iCade, the arcade cabinet for your iPad? Well, it's now got a little sibling, and if you guessed it was for the iPhone and iPod touch, you'd be correct. The iCade Jr. ($TBA) connects to your pocket device via Bluetooth, giving you four buttons on the front, four buttons on the back, and an arcade-style joystick to give you precise control of 100 Atari classics, as well as any other games that've been made with the iCade in mind.
