2012 was an awesome year for gamers!

The year began with the worldwide release of Sony's PlayStation Vita and ended with the launch of Nintendo's HD gaming console, Wii U (and so many other games were released in between). But among all this the best FlipSide was saved for the last.

FlipSide is a sleek and protective solar Bluetooth 4.0 gaming controller case for iPhone, which is currently being funded on Kickstarter. It was created by Justice Frangipane in collaboration with iDevice, a company known for manufacturing gadgets like iGrill and the iShower.

In case everything falls in place for FlipSide and it reaches its pledged goal, it'll be available for iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iTouch 5th Gen and the developers are even planning to make a case compatible with the new iPad and the iPad mini.

The project was released on 22nd December, 2012 and since then FlipSide has been getting a lot of appreciation by the gaming and gadget fraternity.

According to www.engadget.com"The perpetual challenge of developing an iPhone-friendly game pad (or any phone-oriented gamepad) is the bulk, either for a gargantuan case or else a separate controller. If Justice Frangipane's team and iDevices have their way, that clunkiness will be a distant memory."

FlipSide uses solar energy to charge. Some of it's neat features are:
  • FlipSide works on the Bluetooth Low Energy technology, which means super fast bluetooth and one single charge is equivalent to so-many gaming hours.
  • The gaming controls on FlipSide are integrated into the back of the case, making it convenient for the user to play games whenever he wants to by just snapping the controls from the back and attaching them to the front. 
  • FlipSide's battery life is unbelievable. The battery that the developers have used is from a company called IPS. This means that the battery can be charged in any sort of sun light and the battery even charges when the solar panel is facing away from the light (indoor and outdoor lights both work well). Moreover, the battery is thinner than a stamp and it's solid state construction allows the battery to be charged and recharged over and over again with no depreciation in capacity. The battery is going to stay new forever.
  • FlipSide is not bulky. It looks like any other standard iPhone case.
But seriously, who cares about the size, the gaming experience is just enough. FlipSide for sure is going to revolutionize gaming on any iOS device.

Here's how FlipSide looks:

This is just the prototype, remember that its not the final product.

If you like FlipSide, then do make it a point to back it on Kickstarter before 15th January, 2013.
