Company Seeks Funding For Pokémon GO Controller


As the Pokémon GO craze continues to rise, it seems as though just about everyone is looking to tap into the potential monetary gains of the wildly popular game. Recently a company called Gamer Reality launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a “gaming controller” for the game – a foam ball that looks like a Poké Ball.

The company says the ball pairs with the Pokémon GO app and will allow you to throw or gesture your way towards catching a Pokémon – it also has the ability to charge your phone.


While this all sounds interesting, I cant help but think about what the makers of the game Niantic would think about something like this – something tells me they may frown upon the idea. As of now the company has no licensing agreement with Niantic and without that this little ball wont be bouncing anywhere.
