About this project

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

MindoftheGeek- “Where Apple doesn’t deliver, the Bladepad does!"

CultofMac- "The Bladepad is by far the best physical gamepad for iPhone yet!"

Ubergizmo- "We've seen some gaming accessories for the iPhone before... however, if you wished that there were more gaming options you are in luck thanks to the Bladepad..."

iPhoneBuzz- "Playing with the iPhone will never be the same again with Bladepad!" 

Chron.com- "Bladepad is putting the fun back into mobile gaming..."

Appadvice.com- "Bladepad is an iPhone based controller that could change iOS gaming for the better..."

“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

"I think this is a great idea and will add a whole other dimension to mobile gaming" - XiPodManiacX

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.
