The Make4 Clip-On Controller Monitor is a small 7" monitor designed to clip onto a gaming controller. Games like Rocket League can be played in a semi-portable form factor without the input lag added by game streaming.
We fondly remember the original Nvidia Shield Portable. It was a game controller with a built-in 5" LCD screen. The Nvidia Shield enabled you to stream games directly from your PC. One problem with the Nvidia Shield and other similar streaming services (Steam In-Home Streaming) is that streaming lag makes it difficult to play "twitch" shooters and action oriented games.
Our initial goal was just to get it to work. We were able to place the LCD display, controller board, and some adapters into a 3D printed enclosure. Everything worked on our first run-through and we were able to play a number of games.
The prototype currently has a number of issues that prevent it from being something that we would use on a regular basis.
We haven't done any development since the initial prototype so there is clearly a lot of room for improvement. Please Follow the project so that we'll know people are still interested in seeing it developed.
