SAN FRANCISCO, June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Mobile peripheral innovator One2Touch showed a prototype of the world's first NFC mobile game controller at E3 today.
Ultra-responsive, battery-less and instantly pairable, the One2Touch NFC gaming controller adapts to fit around NFC-equipped smartphones, providing precise tactile control and button feel for mobile gamers. A pro model and a casual gamer model are both in development.
Instant touch response is at the core of every gaming experience. One2Touch's five years as a leader in NFC engineering enables its NFC gaming controller to set new standards for speed and feel between the peripheral and the mobile device.
The One2Touch NFC gaming controller uses the company's proprietary power-harvesting technology for a completely battery-less experience.
First developed for the company's portable NFC keyboards in 2013, One2Touch's power harvesting technology allows the controller to draw a very low amount of power from the smartphone. The One2Touch NFC gaming controller never runs flat, never needs a battery change, and has a negligible impact on the smartphone battery life. In addition, the lack of battery assembly allows a lighter, slimmer physical profile and a lower material cost.
Mobile gaming, both casual and serious, is exploding in popularity. NFC technology allows true 'pick up and play' pairing between controller and smartphone, and NFC's low power requirements help ensure battery drain is as low as possible.
One2Touch CEO Morten Wiese spoke about the products from One2Touch's head office in Oslo, Norway today: "Mobile gaming is the future of gaming, and NFC is a perfect technology to create a physical, instant fit between console and smart device," Wiese said.
"One2Touch has spent five years innovating and engineering NFC-based solutions, in addition to combination NFC/BLE systems. Our team is uniquely positioned to be a first mover in this exciting new NFC gaming console space."
"We're excited to be at E3 speaking with prospective partners about OEM/ODM development opportunities for these products", Wiese added.
