It's a Wrap!!


Hi iMpulsers!

Hope you are looking forward to the Holiday Season, your mobile phones packed with games and media that you will play with your iMpulse Controllers! After an incredibly long and challenging 2013, Team iMpulse has completed Kickstarter and Pre-Order deliveries, and are currently cleaning house in preparation for 2014!!

There remain a handful of pledges for which we haven't received surveys yet (and therefore don't have an address to send your controller(s) to) - we have sent email reminders to these backers. So if you haven't received a survey reminder OR a "Welcome to iMpulse!" email, please contact us at info__att_impulsecontroller_dott_com.

The "St. Nick" RoboCop Nickel Sale:
 We have a very limited number of RoboCop Hybrid Nickel Controllers (with Blue or Green LED) available NOW at These RoboCop units look fantastic - also, we currently have NO plans to ever bring back Metal Finish Controllers. If you've been hoping to add to your iMpulse collection - or iMpulse-ively gift a friend this holiday - snap one up now while you still can!

We will ship via 2-day Priority in the U.S., so all orders placed today will reach you before Christmas :)

Firmware News: 
In the last month, we have released our firmware update ver.1.1, which adds Siri control (and iOS home button control) to the Media Mode "V" Button (replacing the 'mute' command). The iMpulse Controller is now the perfect in-car (or in-anywhere) mobile accessory and keyfinder for you iPhone users!

Note: If you are an Android user with ver.1.08 firmware installed, there is no need to upgrade to ver.1.1.

Future of Kickstarter Updates: 
We are transferring user communications to forums at If you have any questions, please post them to the forums or email us at:
info_att_impulsecontroller_dott_com - for general questions about deliveries, usage etc.
tech_att_impulsecontroller_dott_com - for tech support.

We will be posting more firmware versions in the future, and will notify you via email. If you would like to receive our notifications at an email address other than that used for your Kickstarter pledge, please send us an email mentioning your current email address and requested email address.

That's all, folks!

Happy Holidays from Team iMpulse!

      Hi Theerakorn - we had sent you 2 email reminders - since you are an international backer, you were supposed to add funds for international shipping to your pledge. We'll PM you with the instructions again.

      Just found out that I did not receive any package yet. Could you please check it?

      @Brett - The iMpulse has great Android support - it works in keyboard AND gamepad mode, as well as with touchscreen games using Gamekeyboard and similar apps. Hundreds of games and all major emulator apps are supported. Make sure you have the iMpulse firmware v.1.1 installed (download and instructions on our forums and at

      @Anson – Galaxoid works fine here. Make sure the "iCade Emulation" option is selected. There is no up/down movement that we can discern. We'll contact you directly re: the issue with fire button response.

      @Chris - we have replied directly and awaiting the result of your inquiry with local postal services. We will also follow up here although in the case of international post, it's hard for us to get clear replies from USPS, since the packages are out of their jurisdiction by this time.

      @Mztrader - we have replied you directly already - we don't have a record of payment. Please send us any confirmation (or even date of transaction) of payment and we'll be happy to clear this up with Paypal and ship your pledge reward!

      Hi Guys,

      I've just sent you an email regarding my controller not being recievedn on my end. It was for one of the Robocop Hybrid Nickel controllers. It'll contain the info you need, but if you need more info, please let me know.

      are there any confirmed ios shooting games that work flawlessly? I heard Galaxoid is a good one... but I can only move side-to-side, and cannot figure out how to shoot. I've tried all the buttons.... maybe my controller is defective?

      For me I haven't used it more than once. The Android side is heavily neglected.

      Point well taken Boone. However - until we can expand the team a bit - it will help us more efficiently handle correspondence while we work on sales/shipping/tech :)

      I understand why you want to centralize comms, but when BIG announcements come down (new firmware, new products, etc) I wouldn't mind KS notifications, especially since this page will live on as a sort of commercial for your business.

      Great work guys!!!
