“I love that the gamepad can slide off, it's got great looking controls. I also love that it attaches via a slide out style case so it can stow away on your iPhone. Wow, great product.” - MrDoubled50

MOBILE GAMING JUST BECAME EPIC!
Playing games on your iPhone will never be the same! Bladepad brings a full console controller to your phone with a convenient and comfortable gamepad that maximizes portablility and minimizes unnecessary bulk.
Bladepad is made up of two parts:
1) A Protective Case for your iPhone
2) A Detachable Gamepad with a sliding mechanism
HOW IT WORKS:
Connect Bladepad to your iPhone via Bluetooth. Place your iPhone in the protective case and the gamepad slides out beneath your phone. When you are done playing, the gamepad slides back in place under your phone.
If you don't want the gamepad attached, you can easily remove the gamepad from the protective case by sliding the gamepad off via a track along the sides of the case. The protective case stays attached to your phone.
Our video was filmed a couple of months ago with a prototype that was built based on our original design. The images we have posted on this page reflect our final design.
