While I was working for Pull, Kanex, a smart phone and laptop accessory company found us, and asked us to design a protective case for their new smart phone game pad. We finally integrated a phone stand function to the case. Users can use this case as a phone stand when they are using the game pad. This smart phone game pad set is available on the Kanex website.
Combine a protective case and a phone stand
When we discussed the game pad case design with Kanex members, they mentioned that their new smartphone game pad has to operate with two hands. Users of game pad will need a phone stand to stabilize the smartphone on the desk or table when they are using the game pad. We examined several different configurations and discovered that the best solution was to integrate a smartphone stand function to the game pad case design. It was vital that we came up with a compact and simple result to achieve both protection and phone stand functionalities.
