Mad Catz intros The “S.U.R.F.R” Wireless Media and Game Controller
Mad Catz Interactive, announced today the S.U.R.F.R™, a wireless media and game controller designed to integrate seamlessly into today’s connected living room, and portable enough take with you anywhere you want to go.
Seamlessly integrating with Bluetooth® enabled devices, the S.U.R.F.R provides uncompromised control to smart TV’s running Android TV™, Android™ powered streaming media devices, such as the Amazon® Fire TV™ and the Mad Catz M.O.J.O.™ Micro-Console™ for Android™ as well as connected devices including smartphones, tablets and home theater PC’s.
Featuring a full QWERTY Keyboard and mouse capabilities along with integrated media controls, the S.U.R.F.R makes it easy to surf the web, navigate media, and stay connected via text or social media. And when you’re ready to game, the S.U.R.F.R delivers true gamepad control, with action buttons positioned around dual analog thumb sticks. Four buttons positioned on the left thumb stick mimic D-pad control, while buttons on the right serve as the traditional four action buttons commonly found on console style controllers. This unique configuration allows the controller to remain compact yet highly ergonomic during use.
“Today’s living room is rapidly evolving beyond proprietary cable boxes and gaming consoles. While consumers continue to gravitate towards connected devices as their preferred platform for streaming digital media content, gaming, surfing the web and social media, current controllers just don’t deliver on the experience they desire. The S.U.R.F.R has been designed to get the most out of these different devices we are now accustomed to in our daily lives,” said Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz. “We are confident in the multiple opportunities presented by the S.U.R.F.R and look forward to it contributing to sales of our GameSmart suite of connected products throughout 2015 and beyond.”
For gaming-on-the-go, the S.U.R.F.R features a removable mobile clip for docking a smartphone.
