The current Drone DMND design is claimed to work with most smartphones, tablets and computers, and features two analog joysticks, a digital D-Pad, six upper face buttons, two analog shoulder buttons and two digital buttons on the underside. It's powered by an internal battery that's charged via USB. Evolution Controllers is making the Drone's architecture completely open source to give developers and tweakers access to every aspect of the controller, including the ability to open up the hardware itself to add something extra to the board.
The brainchild of Matthew Hefferon, Ren Livingston and Adam Weisgerber, the Drone DMND Bluetooth controller for mobile gaming allows players to make the most of display real estate by controlling onscreen action off-device, instead of fighting to see through chubby fingers to keep tabs on targets or characters in the game. The first funding campaign on Kickstarter only managed to attract half its funding target and so failed to go into production, but the process did provide the team with some useful feedback for continued development.
