When gaming on your mobile device, using a touchscreen is fine, but many of us prefer the old fashioned feel of a controller in our hands. But there aren’t a lot of options out there (yet). Enter Evolution Team’s DRONE, an open source Bluetooth controller designed to work with smartphones and tablets.

The DRONE works just like a typical gamepad and uses Bluetooth to connect to your device. The best part is that it’s open to customization. If you want, you can upload your own code to modify the controller. It’s designed to work with emulators too, not your standard touchscreen games, so it’s more about retro gaming. You definitely want a controller for the classics.

The Evolution Team is looking for funds to continue development and manufacture of the DRONE, so if you want to help them and pledge some money, head over to the Kickstarter page. A pledge of $65(USD) or more will get you one of the controllers once released.
