Composed as a single joystick, four sip-and-puff sensors, a lip position sensor and a push switch, the controller outputs to both USB and Bluetooth, and then into gaming hardware. QuadStick will be compatible with PCs, Android devices and PS3s, and with the addition of an adapter, Xbox One and Xbox 360 as well. Controller configuration is available,with pre-arranged setups built in. Users can use its straws to shift between different control methods.




Gamers can also utilize its voice command capacity by using third-party voice recognition software, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, and calibrate word commands into game-specific actions. Presently, five working prototypes exist, with the original aim of the Kickstarter to achieve production of at least 25 units after the campaign has ended. QuadStick's Kickstarter ends on March 6, 2014.
