Backbone is the brainchild of a young entrepreneur Maneet Khaira, who was working at Google as an intern when he came up with his startup idea for a device that could turn an iPhone into a portable Xbox.
Compact, natural, and comfortable, the Backbone One iOS controller wraps your iPhone in a high-quality gamepad shell that’s satisfying to play, well-constructed, and accompanied by a genuinely useful app. iPhone’s Lightning port automatically pick up connectivity to Backbone One and the companion app has a lot of useful features too. It can capture, edit and upload gaming content as well as supports voice chat with friends that works across any app.
