The latest creation of industrial design studio KEM Studio is one of those why-didn’t-w-think-of-that things that will end up on the wish list of every gamer who makes sweet dough and lives in a swank pad. Really, that plastic XBox/PS controller is just so… juvenile. Straight outta Toys ‘R Us.
KEM Studios’ S1 game controller, designed for a gaming lifestyle company called SON (we can’t find any more information on SON) is for grownups. Here’s how KEM describes it:
Having grown up with games since the early days of 8-bit until the current consoles we know today, it’s apparent the world of gaming has grown up – and so have the gamers. With that in mind, we set out to create something that spoke to us. In the end, it became the dopest, most refined controller we could dream up.
Designed for SON, a lifestyle gaming brand based in New York, S1 is a fully reimagined video game controller from the ground up. It features an oversized aluminum base to fit adult hands, a solid walnut face to let those sweaty hands breathe and height adjustable joysticks for every thumb out there. Not to mention it plays nice with your coffee table.
