PhoneJoy Play, Hong Kong Smartphone Gaming Controller from HK

[13/12/12] 

You don’t find too many Kickstarter projects emanating from Hong Kong but we’ve found one that truly merits our support. The PhoneJoy Play is a compact, extendable gaming controller developed in HK which attaches to all Smartphones running iOS or Android. Instead of messing around with clumsy touch screen controls - and only being able to see half the screen because of your sausage fingers - you simply snap on the PhoneJoy Play and game away. The MTR crowds will be in awe.

Once you’ve connected your phone to the PhoneJoy Play it resembles a Nintendo DS, featuring all of the controls associated with a gaming schtecker such as side buttons and dual-analog controls. Essentially, the gadget turns your phone into a proper console with proper buttons. If you’re still unsure, check out their Kickstarter video which even has a nice Hong Kong beach in it. It elicits a surprising amount of pride in your city doesn’t it?

Another bonus is that you can link the device to your TV or projector via your computer, turning your living room into a new gaming Mecca. To take the PhoneJoy Play to mass production, however, its developers are trying to raise US$50,000 on Kickstarter and they need our help reaching their target. At is stands, they’ve secured US$35,500 with 21 days lefts but if you pledge US$50, for instance, you can get your hands on a PhoneJoy Play and support some great lads based in HK. Mario would.

Go on, you know you want to.
