Users’ experiences of controlling content with mobile accessories have major shortcomings. In uses such as gaming joysticks and VR viewers, Bluetooth connectivity is unstable, requires frequent charging, and can be expensive. Widevantage’s proprietary software + a line of patented hardware allow a painless mobile experience free of connectivity/battery life/cost issues.
Conventional game controllers require complex circuits, Bluetooth communication, and power in a much bigger form factor.
MotionPlay is a ring-sized game controller for mobile without battery/Bluetooth. Its always-on gadget clips onto your phone and turns your phone into a true gaming pad. The benefits include full screen visibility (no screen space lost to gameplay mechanics), no distractions (tactile feedback enables intuitive, more precise gameplay). It needs no battery or Bluetooth. Just clip it on and enjoy games.

MotionPen is a battery/Bluetooth-free pen that’s always-on with the following intelligent functions and impressive features as 3D hovering & joystick function, pencil-like fl ip-to-erase, and no battery and Bluetooth is required.
And this has ideal design for toys and education. This comes with writing/drawing app and fi ve educational game apps for kids. Competitors’ pens are fi ve times more expensive, requires frequent charging and Bluetooth pairing. MotionVR permits uniquely immersive joystick-based navigational control. It is compatible with all phones, and is an aff ordable 360 VR solution. It is cardboard-based like with Google’s headset.
