Hate trying to type on your PS4? Well good news! NYKO Technologies has announced their latest gadget for the PlayStation 4, the NYKO Type Pad! It’s a full QWERTY layout keyboard, which clips onto the bottom of the DUALSHOCK 4 controller. Not only does the Type Pad allow gamers to type and insert text, it also includes a mini-analog nub which makes navigating easier, as well as shortcut “@” and “.com” buttons. The Type Pad can be charged using a standard micro-USB cable, and can be turned on and off to conserve battery life.
“With the rise of game streaming and eSports, gaming has never been more collaborative and communicative,” director of marketing at Nyko Technologies, Chris Arbogast stated, “For that, we wanted to create a tool that would let on-screen navigation and multiplayer communication on consoles become as effortless as it is on a PC, all with consideration for the DUALSHOCK 4’s ergonomics.”
You can grab a NYKO Type Pad for $29.99 on NYKO‘s official website, Amazon and Gamestop.
