Ever glanced down at your Xbox controller and thought ‘game controllers need to look more like robotic arachnid death machines’? Well, weirdly – your prayers have just been answered.
Announced at the ongoing tech show CES, Madcatz yesterday revealed their creepy looking masterpiece, The L.Y.N.X Mobile Hybrid Controller.
Touted as ‘the ultimate controller’ Madcatz wants you to use this for everything – and right now we’re too scared to disagree. As the horrifying gif above reveals, the controller unfolds into several different forms, from the standard controller to the multi legged death machine or ‘tablet controller’ as Madcatz insist on calling it.
Aside from looking like something out of War Of the Worlds, the controller will support everything from tablets, to phones and even computers and consoles. Boasting a drop down keyboard, a mouse sensor and even a mic for voice chat and voice commands, this controller really does look like it could be the one controller to rule them all… and with those evil spider legs, we’re genuinely worried that it might end us ruling us.
The transforming controller will be released at an unspecified date this year, and UK pricing will soon be announced. In the mean time, get an EMP handy and start preparing for the inevitable gruelling and merciless robotic spider invasion.
