When I was at the Game On convention in Phoenix, Az, I came across a booth that was actually hidden and almost missed.  Austin Stark, owner of Fixture Gaming, was displaying a product that he was ready to launch on Indiegogo, but was still working on the details.  But the minute I saw it, I knew that he had something that would be wanted by Switch players everywhere.

One of the biggest problems with the Switch is holding it in a comfortable position.  If not reclining in a chair or even laying down, sometimes it can be difficult to hold and enjoy.  Also, there are some gamers that enjoy playing games using the pro-wireless controllers more than the Switch controllers.  Stark created a solution to all of these concerns.  The Fixture S1 creates the most comfortable and convienent way for gaming on the go.

 

 

The Fixture S1 allows you to place the screen right above the controller or even standing upright as shown from the picture above.  You can place the S1 on its own with jus the monitor so you and a friend can use pro controllers.  There are two versions of the Fixture S1 that are in production.  The one that is pictured above and one that has an opening area underneath so you can plug in a charging cord easier.

I have been using one of these since August as a test product and it is difficult to come up with the right words to top the word AWESOME!  I have always been uncomfortable with the standard controllers that come with the Switch and being able to carry the pro controller and the system attached in a complete fold up unit is the way it should have been from day one.

You still have time to order one on Indiegogo

Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter. He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few. Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison. His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
