iOS and Android gamepad iMpulse raises half of $50k goal within days

Tiny keyring sized tablet controller launches on Kickstarter

A new game controller for Android and iOS has launched on Kickstarter that seeks to solve the bigest problem with gaming on smartphones: the interface.

Touch screen interfaces are so intuitive most smarphones don’t even come with instruction manuals, but hard core gamers have been hesitant to adopt a control mechanism that requires them to block the display with their finger.

The iMpulse gamepad seeks to make this barrier a thing of the past with what the designers claim is the world’s smallest wireless mobile game controller.

Black Powder Media has already raised over $28,000 of its $50,000 goal for the ambidextrous game pad, with 41 days left on the campaign.

The impulse is more than a gamepad though, and functions as a media controller and remote camera control.

Users can even use their smartphone to locate their keys with the device’s bluetooth.
