How do you cater to a gamer who wants to build Minecraft worlds one day and then the next day, race in an F1 car, and then the third day, explore the open world of Skyrim? Modularity. Sushant Vohra developed the EXEO series of plug-together-and-play gaming controllers last year and now the EXEO 2.0 refines that concept. Retaining the three pillars of controller design, the Velox, Brutus, and Terra, Sushant decided to refine them, visually and ergonomically, sticking to the core design, but making each product slightly slimmer, and with more character. They still snap together, allowing you to build more complex controllers from rifles, to bazookas, to steering wheels or hockey sticks.
It’s nice to see Sushant develop his vision into something so concrete. That’s how Phonebloks gained traction and became Google’s famed Project Ara. Will we see EXEO change the way we play games? I sincerely hope so! Imagine building your own weapons and gear (customized according to the nature of your game) and playing with them in VR! The possibilities and opportunities seem truly endless!
