A slippery game controller grip can prove to be frustrating for gamers who want absolute control. Heart-stopping, sweaty-palmed moments, and the moisture that accumulates after hours of gripping a game controller make getting a firm grip difficult.
Engineer Todd Ryan Smith put his mind to finding a solution to the problem and came up with ‘T Gripz’, a gaming accessory that consist of a sandpaper-like adhesive gripping tape pre-cut for use on game controllers, smart phones and tablets. Not only does the tape provide a better grip and, according to Smith, higher than ever scores thanks to improved control, it also helps to keep the device clean and free from moisture. But the tape does more than improve grip and protect the device; players also get enhanced comfort owing to the absorbent nature of the tape, helping players to stick to their gaming for longer.
Look for it to hit the market sometime in 2016.
