Let’s get the ball rolling… Share, support, & back our project so that you can finally have the coolest Android accessory in your hands, XOPAD!
And the moment you all have been waiting for…. Here is a video preview of the XOPAD. A functional prototype just waiting to be in your hands. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
We here behind the scenes of the XOPAD have been toiling away for countless hours perfecting our design. We are currently assembling our prototype, and since this is the first time anything like this has been done before it has been nothing short of tedious.
We have our custom circuit boards, all of our parts, the design is near flawless and the excitment is growing. The prototype for the XOPAD is taking shape and can now be physically held in our hands rather than just pieced together on a computer screen. It is no longer the figment of the imaginations of a group of engineers and friends. It is about to be YOUR coolest gadget for your Android phone!
Photos to follow in our next post, along with information about our upcoming launch on Kickstarter. Stay tuned & tell your friends!
XOPAD firmware is going to be open source!
To those of you reading this blog who, like myself a year ago, don’t know what that means:
“Open source is software or firmware whose source code is available for users to view, learn, alter and develop in a cooperative way, much of which is freely accessible in the public domain.”
What does that mean to you, our consumers?
When you purchase the XOPAD for Android, you will be able to use the product as-is, or if you are the creative tech-savvy type, you can alter the functions of the buttons, triggers, bumpers, sound, etc. to your preference (if the game developer doesn’t already allow for this). Not all games are created equal, why should your XOPAD be restricted to one type of gaming preference?
We are excited to share this development with you!
After spending countless hours in development, finally we present to you… the first 3D rendered images of the XOPAD for Android!
The following images may contain massive amounts of awesomeness. Take note of the impressive amount of features:
Dual speakers for stereo sound, unobstructed by hand placement
Two triggers, two bumpers
D Pad beside clickable joystick
Action pad beside second clickable joystick
Sleek design & gorgeous logo!
Viewers may suffer from a sudden urge to spam our Facebook, Twitter, and blog, asking for the release date to be sooner. You have been warned!
