Quickparts recently completed a new product for Game Gripper, LLC, creating a new gaming device for the cell phone industry.

The Game Gripper is a handheld instrument used to convert the Motorola Droid keyboard into a gaming handset. The device fits over the phone and comes with custom buttons that align to the keyboard to enhance the gaming experience while using the Droid handset.

Hyrum Fairbanks, the device inventor, spotted a need in the market for the device when he found the keyboard tough to use for gaming.   “The Droid has some of the best games available on the market, but the keyboard was a limiting factor in how much the user enjoyed playing the games,” he says. “My product made the phone great for gaming, I just needed a company to help me make them economically. Quickparts helped me make the design and material changes I needed to bring the costs down and bring it to market” 

In addition to the Motorola Droid, Game Gripper is in the process of releasing several other models that will allow users of other popular phones on the market to enjoy similar gaming benefits.
