Plug A PSP Controller Into A Smartphone For An Instant Video Game Console

Plug A PSP Controller Into A Smartphone For An Instant Video Game Console

The GameKlip connects a Playstation controller to your Android phone, offering an alternative to touch controls for more complex mobile games.

GameKlip mounts an Android smartphone to a PS3 controller. Connecting these wirelessly using the Sixaxis Controller app from Dancing Pixel Studios gives gamers native analog input and emulates touch and hardware controls. The GameKlip was developed by University of Washington student Ryan French and is made out of strong ABS plastic. It easily snaps onto the controller, providing a simple solution for better mobile gaming controls.

Turn A Smartphone Into A Handheld Video Game System With This Add-On

Each GameKlip is laser cut and┬áthermoformed to the controller and specific phone model, with GameKlips for popular phones kept in stock and others made on demand. You can check that your phone is compatible for wireless connections using the Sixaxis Compatibility Checker before ordering the wireless model, which is priced at $15. If it isn’t, there is also a wired version of the GameKlip available for $23. Watch GameKlip’s promo video below for a closer look:
