Many game controllers that have been announced earlier for the iOS, but standalone controllers are the latest trend emerging from CES this year. As Signal has announced the RP One, a new iOS 7 controllers with a Bluetooth gamepad in a traditional console-style design. The device is capable of connecting with the iPhones and iPads running on iOS7 as it works wirelessly over Bluetooth.
The RP One has been designed with serious gaming in mind, offering a “full scale” ergonomic shape to fit a range of hand sizes. The current prototype of the controller includes a directional pad, two triggers, two analog sticks and four action buttons. SIGNAL also claims that the controller will last for up to 10 hours on a single charge, similar to the Stratus.
Each RP One includes a universal stand for all of Apple’s iOS devices which is compatible with all the covers and cases. The RP One game controller offers up to 10 hours of battery life.
The RP One resembles the recently introduced SteelSeries Stratus with a more promising design that mimics the popular Xbox controller. Earlier the controllers from Logitech and MOGA connected via the iPhone’s Lightning port.
Currently, multiple games like Dead Trigger 2, Asphalt 8: Airborne and Bastion includes iOS 7 controller support. The RP One will retail for $99.99 (Rs 6,200 approximately) and should launch in the first half of 2014.
