Default CTRLR holding a 7" tablet

Hi guys,
Been wanting to do this for a long time
Here it is... what a bad boy!!
The tablet is a cheapish chinese mali400 2GBram with hdmi out (hyundai T7s) , I bough instead of the ouya, sooo glad I did to, definitely getting my monies worth!
I got the same apps/emulators setup on here as the MOJO.... obviously it doesn't play as nice, but does okay

Been playing N64, MK4 is smooth, GE 007 and Dest. Durby both playable but laggy (9-30ps).

It's kinda heavy holding it, close to 1kilo as a guess.
It's not to bad if upright and balanced, but when angeled the weight of the tablet is noticeable.
Overall, feels comfortable with the controller, like in front of the TV

It's sturdy but there's a tiny bit of play at the bottom, even with the screw on tight... it's really testing the CTRLR's build quality here! lol

This is da shiz! Very cool,
I did photos as I put it together.. it's just fine rope and a small L bracket with tape wraped around it.
I'll blog it one day soonish..

Hi,
I've finished my blog post about how I made my 7 inch clip.

I update it with the support bracket info.

Default ctrlr disassembled

After using my 7 tablet with the CTRLR, I started to wonder why the CTRLR weighs so much?
So I decided to open it and see.

Next time I'll take better photos!

Afraid not - those are weights added to improve the balance and feel of the CTRLR.

Only with an OTG USB cable, right now (unless you have the unlocked, developer or Google edition, in which case you're fine). As soon as you get the KitKat update then you'll be able to sync directly.

I have the international unlocked version and running KitKat with Sense 5.5.

So I guess it will work. I want to connect phone to TV using MHL and pair it via bluetooth and have a mini console

Also where can I buy this from?

Can you disable the screen while on MHL? I hear there's performance issues with even mirroring to mini/micro HDMI?
But yeah that will work.

The retail version controller will be BT2 and BT4 so will work on "any" android/PC device and includes the travel clip
Not sure when it will be out, I hope soon I want another one
I guess on amazon and newegg etc
I don't think they will be cheap either, over $50 for sure.
