Bladepad Controller for iPhone

What does everyone think of the Bladepad that's up on Kickstarter?. It's a controller for the iphone with dual analogue sticks and a slider case. Looks pretty decent

Looks a bit bulky, may not fit in my pocket.

Attache to the iphone it should be about the same thickness as a Nintendo DS Lite or 3DS. So unless you have those tight skinny jeans , it shouldn't be a problem fitting it into a pocket.

Or you're cursed with a slim waist and don't like wearing belts, but if you don't, baggy and regular jeans will slide off. Seriously, I can only wear straight fit, slim fit, and skinny without any extra help (belt). Belts just get in the way IMO.

I like the PSP Go look of the Bladepad, but its biggest problem is developer support. I wonder what those "major game studios" are.

It looks like this was cancelled. There's another iPhone game controller up on Kickstarter now, the Coco Controller. I like that it uses the headphone jack instead of bluetooth. Hopefully this one reaches the goal. I've been wanting a controller like this for a long time.

I saw something like that before, but it was not a gamepad, but rather it was a keyboard case that slides out too.

Looks like a great accessory. Hopefully it will be durable.

Looks ok, but can't use it on my ipad. Why is it so hard to make a bluetooth xbox joystick for ios? I still don't get it.
