Drone by Evolution Controllers
One controller to rule them all. Well, certainly the ability to work across multiple devices. Evolution Controllers, a Kickstarter funded project, have released their Bluetooth/Wifi enabled controller for smartphones, tablets and PC’s.
More and more third party controllers are hitting the market, and for good reason. With many devices coming with either their own configured controller or simply touch screen capabilities, people are crying out for a device that can be used across multiple devices.
Drone by Evolution is one such product. The open-sourced, 120mm x 66mm x 25mm controller has a very retro feel to it, and comes in a range of colours. The pad consists of two analogue sticks, but these are more like nubs that lie very close to the face of the device, making it perfect for sliding into your pocket or bag. It comes with a very traditional button layout and fits in your hand like you would expect, however the D-pad does feel a little bit stiff for my liking and the buttons positioned on the back face of the controller get some used to – but that might just be me.
All in all, this is a good product for those who want to take their gaming experience to the next level, and it’s reasonably priced at $59.99.
