iMpulse Controller for Smart Phones

By , on July 5, 2012

In a lot of our reviews, you would have heard us bemoan the lack of responsive controls, especially on games that are ports from console or PC where you have a keyboard or controller to deal with. With that in mind, it's always neat to see a company create a controller to interface with smart phones, and the iMpulse is such a device.

Touted as small and wireless, this controller fits on your keyring, has USB connection as well as long battery life. Since it's supposed to go on your keychain, your phone can help you find your keys if you misplace them.

While sounding good in theory, developers need to make their games compatible with the device, and its tiny frame might prove uncomfortable for play. Still, we won't know till it's out and taken for a test drive. The iMpulse is set for release in the final quarter of the year and will cost $20.
