Gamer Duo – A pair of controllers for video games
At the moment controllers are universal for all types of players and all video game genres. Because operating a controller is a learned skill, video game beginners have a disadvantage compared to experienced players in games that require a skillful handling of a controller and quick reactions. This has a particularly negative impact on cooperative games creating unnecessary frustration for players. The concept "Gamer Duo" includes two different input devices: "Champ" for gaming experts and "Rookie" for gaming beginners. Champ consists of two handles with usual controls, like an analog stick, buttons and triggers. Rookie on the other hand includes a beginner-friendly touchpad and only few buttons.
