Since Apple announced support for official MFi (Made for iPhone) gaming controllers with iOS 7, the major peripheral makers have been quick to announce and release some of their creations. However, those we’ve seen hitherto have shared one common trait – they’re all tailored specifically to the iPhone. With cases that clip perfectly onto the form factor of the Apple smartphone, those on the iPad and iPod touch have been largely cast aside, but now, in the RP One, avid mobile gaming fans have an Xbox-esque controller to truly enhance the general user experience.

Google Glass may have been one of tech’s main talking points over the past 18 months or so, but it is by no means alone in its quest to introduce face computers to the fore. In fact, one of its main competitors, GlassUp, is busily showcasing its first prototype at CES this week, and although it doesn’t have the kind of resources of the Mountain View-based search giant, its efforts are certainly impressive nonetheless.

Of course, this isn’t always the case, but it definitely does help to have an intricate knowledge of the industry your product is going to be launched in.

If you loved Orbotix’s Sphero Robot Ball then the likelihood is that you’ll be positively thrilled with their latest introduction at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The originally released Sphero was a quirky, fun and innovative smartphone controlled robotic sphere that provided hours of fun and entertainment. The latest edition to the Orbotix family is the Sphero 2B, a new cylinder shaped toy that takes on a slightly different form factor but still manages to pack in all of the fun and innocent glee that you would imagine a Sphero device would have thanks to its “mad speed” and “sick tricks”.

There’s been a great deal of speculation and chatter about game controllers ever since Apple launched the updated MFi (“Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad”) program alongside the introduction of iOS 7 last year. Mobile gaming has taken off in a big way over the last twelve months, meaning that having the ability to interact with powerful games directly on one of Apple’s devices through an officially supported controller was always going to ring the excitement bells of a lot of iOS users.
