Mad Catz reveals £250 transforming controller

A new games controller that changes shape according to the device it is being used with has been unveiled by Mad Catz.

The Batarang-like LYNX 9 Mobile Hybrid Controller can be used standalone with a PC (via Bluetooth) but will also transform to either hold an Android smartphone or even straddle either side of an Android tablet.

An attachable physical QWERTY keyboard is also included, as well as an integrated microphone.

The entire thing will also fold up for transport and will apparently run for 30 minutes from a single charge. It can be tailored with an accompanying Android app that also offers a number of preset game profiles.

The UK price, according to Eurogamer, is a somewhat eye-watering 249.99. It will retail for $299.99 in the US and is expected to ship in March.
