Remember the Ouya? You'll be forgiven for saying no at this point, because the ill-fated micro-console didn't exactly make the splash that its creators predicted it would. One of Kickstarter's early hits, Ouya failed to set the games market alight and quietly faded into the night, never to be seen again.

Well, almost never. The console's controller design has been bizarrely resurrected as an unofficial wireless pad for the Switch, produced by Chinese firm ViGRAND.


The controller pairs via Bluetooth V3.0 and has a 380mAh lithium battery which gives about five hours of use on a 2 to 3 hour charge. Gyro controls are supported, and there are dual motors inside for rumble. The only thing missing is NFC support.

With a price tag of just $25 this is certainly an interesting option, especially if you're one of the few people who actually owned an Ouya and like the pad design. However, we can't say what the quality is like, so order at your own risk.
