As of 2022 there are over 4,78,000 Android Game apps present on Google Play store. Over 21% of apps downloaded on playstore are games. With huge increase in popularity of android games in 2022. With increased hardware power of android phones, more complicate and more variety of games have made their way in the android market. But a limitation to android gaming is the unavailability of gaming buttons, joystick, mouse, keyboard in android phones that makes gaming experience dull.

The usage of phone screen to add buttons deteriorates phone touch screen gradually and further reduces actual game size on screen while fingers on mobile screen blocking the view.
Well we hereby propose a solution to this problem by developing a smart Bluetooth based gaming pad for android phones. This gaming pad is connects with the phone via Bluetooth and has 2 joysticks and push buttons too thus leaving complete phone screen for game screen and providing efficient movement and push controls.

This System provides the following advantages:

  • Wide range of control options
  • Wireless Bluetooth Connectivity with Phone
  • Joystick for Movement/flight operation
  • Push buttons for fire and other actions

The system makes use of a li ion Battery, Battery charging and monitor system, Push Buttons, Joysticks, switch, Bluetooth Module and minor components to develop this system. The lion battery can be recharged using charging port and support wireless gaming experience.

The gamepad has a unique designed and shaped PCB in the shape of a gamepad. The PCB has 2 x joysticks mounted on it for transmitting movement and aim commands to the phone. Also we have 4 push buttons on the joystick for action commands. Also we use a small LCD display on the joystick to display connection setting and other gamepad status.
The Bluetooth module is used to establish a Bluetooth connection with an android phone. Once connected the keys pressed on the gamepad allow the user to transmit movement and fire commands to the phone thus simplifying gaming and making the experience more fun.

The Android Gamepad is a small portable battery powered gamepad that can be easily carried anywhere. Also the Rechargable battery allows user to charge the gamepad and use it while travelling too.
