Wikipad bringing universal tablet controller to Android, Windows 8
Android tablet manufacturer Wikipad is developing a snap-on controller peripheral for Android and Windows 8 tablet devices, VentureBeat reports.

The Gamevice accessory, shown above, features two analog sticks, a d-pad, four face buttons, four shoulder buttons, and a pair of option buttons. The peripheral fits over a connected Android tablet, turning supported devices into gaming-capable controllers that roughly resemble the Wii U GamePad in form.

The Wikipad gaming tablet launched last year, offering a 7-inch touch display surrounded by a custom-built, detachable controller interface. A release date for the Gamevice has not been announced.
