Entering text using a console’s gamepad is never an easy task, but the Circboard might be able to make it a little less painful. The system basically splits the letters into segments that can be selected with the left analog stick on an Xbox 360 controller and the right analog stick selecting the specific letter. Shoulder bumpers handle space and backspace keys, while the left trigger toggles the caps. It’s currently still a demo, but the team is looking to get the system implemented in a variety of games and other apps, and they’re currently looking for investors. Do you think that this is how we’ll be typing out messages in consoles? Video demonstration after the jump.
