Concept Nyx Game Controller is created for flexible, anywhere PC gaming. The idea was to make gaming libraries more accessible than ever. At first glance, it might look like just another controller, but take a closer look and you’ll find many unique features you’ve never seen on a gaming controller before. The controller innovates in four distinct ways: 1. Allows users to quickly connect and stream games to any device in their environment by using either their voice (Example: “Play Fortnite on my living room TV”), by automatically streaming to the nearest device, or simply turning on the controller and aiming it at the device they want to stream to. 2. Increases the maximum number of actions assignable to the handheld controller to ~95 (via the shift buttons, omni-pad and the on-screen control overlay). 3. Retains the ability to multitask during gameplay – so users can chat with friends, listen to music, or watch a video (via dual scroll wheels on the front of the controller). 4. Draws inspiration from a keyboard and mouse interactions (like shift buttons and bumper scroll wheels).
