UtorCase turns your PS3 controller and your Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1 into a handheld game console. (According to my research Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1 does not support USB OTG out of the box required for Android gaming, but you may have a chance to enable it with root access. For a list of phones that have out of the box USB OTG support click here).
- Secure 4 sided grip of your Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1( most competitors only provide a 2 sided grip )
- Tailor made exactly for your Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1 ( most comptetitors try a one size fits all mount that often pushes various buttons on your phone, and require you to adjust with the holder with clamps or rubber bands )
- Single unit without extra parts, such as rubber bands
- Easily and quickly mount the phone on the controller
- Conveniently use second screen apps that support landscape mode
In addition to UtorCase, you will also need the following items (excluded from your Shapeways purchase!):
- Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1 with USB OTG or USB Host enabled (Amazon)
- PS3 Controller (Dualshock 3) (Amazon)
- USB OTG cable for Android gaming (Female USB to Male Micro USB) (Amazon)
- Games that support the Android Gamepad API (I started here a list that you can edit as well)
Before you purchase:
- Please make sure you can connect your Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1 and your PS3 controller with a USB OTG Cable. On the Utor Case Questions and Answers page, I collected common issues that you may face while trying to connect your controller with your Gigabyte GSmart Aku A1
- Test your second screen apps on your phone as some don't yet support landscape mode.
UtorCase will show on one of its side a shortened name of your phone: GGAA1
The dimensions of the device holder are based on the official dimensions:
