The Playbook Controller is a gaming peripheral that gives users the ability to play multi-player sports games without letting their opponent know their next move. A small touch screen, wrapped in protective silicone, allows users to take their play calling off the big screen and into their hands. Read more...
The Playbook Controller touch screen is connected to the controller through Bluetooth. The screen does not require headphone jacks or powerful computing components, so it can be very slim with long battery life. It’s charged with a micro USB port on the bottom of the case. The port is connected to the screen with a small extender cable hidden in the silicone case.
The Playbook Controller attaches to standard Playstation 4 controllers in two ways. The first is the functional headphone plug. This plug is connected to a short audio cable embedded in the silicone case. The cable ends with a female headphone jack at the bottom of the unit. So the functionality of the jack is not disturbed by attaching the Playbook Controller to the bottom of the standard controller. A non-functional extension plug also fits snugly into the extension port on the bottom of the standard controller.
Stability wings further support the Playbook Controller during game play. The silicone wings rest securely on the standard controller grips. The Playbook Controller wraps firmly around the grips and includes a bulge of soft silicone on the bottom to provide cushion for the players hands.
A provisional and design patent application has been filed as of January 2018. The Patent Search was performed by The Mars Rising Network. It was concluded that there is nothing similar to this product on the market, which means this unique device could be patented and brought into people’s homes.
