Even though touchscreen devices have been around for years now, we completely understand that there are those of you who absolutely cannot get the handle of using them to type, navigate or play games. You trust mobile phones with physical keyboards and accessories that allow you to achieve the feel of a controller when you play games.
A new case from iPhone5Mod called the EX Hybrid Controller allows you to use both a keyboard and physical controller all in one very slim case. The first piece of the case has a magnet that can be used to snap an included keyboard or game controller, which interacts with the iPhone 5 through Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity.
Both the keyboard and game controller are only 2mm thick, meaning you’ll probably barely notice they’re attached to your iPhone 5 case when you’re traveling with it. An hour of charge time means you’ll have 40 hours of use from either the keyboard or controller, and 160 hours of standby time. The case is also water and dust-proof, but keep in mind just because the case can handle dust and water, doesn’t mean you should be sticking your iPhone 5 in a bucket of either of these.
