We’ve seen plenty of gaming controllers designed for smartphones and tablets, and if you’re looking something a little different from what’s being offered these days, then the FlipSide case for the iPhone could be a Kickstarter project worth investing in. Justice Frangipane and iDevices have teamed up to create this case for the iPhone which not only double as a case for your iPhone device, but at the same time turns into a gaming controller, allowing you to play games with physical buttons and controls versus onscreen controls which some might find not as intuitive for certain games.
That combined with the fact that it relies on solar power to keep itself powered also means that you won’t have to worry about it dying on you and needing a charge, as long as you ensure that the case is constantly exposed to light sources. It looks and sounds like a pretty good idea due to its convenience and portability, and it seems that its creators are looking to make an Android version as well assuming the iPhone version kicks off, so if you’d like to donate (a pledge of $60 will get you the FlipSide case upon successful funding) or learn more about it, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.
