XOPAD is an Open Source Android USB Controller for Your Smartphone

Smartphones today are being installed with more and more powerful processors that can now support games from consoles. For the avid gamers out there, you know that using the touch screen interface for a complex game just won't do it.

The XOPAD is an Android controller that connects via USB and can be adjusted to fit all smartphones (including the largest Android smartphone available today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2). Instead of draining the smartphone's battery while using the controller, XOPAD does the opposite and charges it with its built-in 3000 mAh battery.

XOPAD looks just like a regular console controller with a D-Pad and analog joysticks. With its integrated accessible firmware unit, it can be used as a host or as a peripheral accessory which lets developers create upgrades and open new ideas.
