ByoWave engineers solutions for gamers to take back control. The first step in our mission to smash the barriers to the digital world is the Proteus Controller ecosystem. The Proteus Controller is a modular and accessible controller kit that enables the user to build and rebuild their way to play. Our companion software allows for advanced customisation and performance and encourages a community of gamers and makers to build their own solutions for the problem of inaccessibility in accessing the digital world.
The Proteus Controller is like Lego for video game controllers! It is a kit made up of modular parts that easily connect together using our patent-pending connection mechanism. With just one kit you can build over 100 million configurations. Each kit comes with everything you need to play, plus 6 extra buttons.
The Proteus controller can be built and rebuilt over and over into any configuration you want. You can also share your custmom controller configurations with the community. In order to share your configuration, you can either build your controller online, or upload your configuration using the Proteus Companion Phone app. The controller knows how it is built which makes it super easy to share your configurations with the community! You can then tag your controller with relevant information so others can try out your controller. Our advanced AI matchmaker can
The cusomization and sharing does not stop there! We are open sourcing our connection mechanisms so that players can 3D print custom parts for the Proteus Controller and share them with the community. Our online controller builder will allow you to create or upload models for 3D printing which you can then order from us, or 3D print yourself at home (if you’re cool enough to have a 3D printer!). You can then share your 3D files with the community who can 3D print and add them to their Proteus Controller.
Mother Cube: The Mother Cube is the brain of the controller, it contains all of the electronics that power and connect the device. Each kit needs at least one Mother Cube.
Analog Cube: Each analog cube contains a left or right analog stick, which can be remapped depending on your controller configuration.
Edge Cube: This Cube allows you to angle body modules or peripherals to make the perfect controller shape.
Spacer: Spacers allow you to space out your body modules or peripherals, perfect for those with larger hands or if you want to spread your controller over a larger area.
Peripherals: Peripherals magnetically snap onto any female side of the body modules.
Plugs: Plugs cover any female side of the face that you are not using. In the future you will be able to add custom decals to your plugs.
Handles: Handles can be added to any female side of a body module for improved grip and ergonomics. Handles can also be 3D printed to fit your hand shape.
