The Grifta Gamepad Changes Size and Splits Into Two

The Grifta is a modular gamepad system whose left and right units can be separated into stand-alone pieces. This three-piece gamepad's main selling point is that it offers a keyboard mode for playing with one grip and a mouse, as well as eight extra buttons on either side of its two hand grips.

Most gamepads come in one-size-fits-all shells that demand that players' fingers and thumbs be arranged at either end around the circuit board that lies beneath the joysticks and buttons. However the Grifta system puts ergonomics in the human hand first and works the design around the ergonomics, not vice versa.

Players who game for long periods at a time will certainly find the Grifta useful in minimizing pain and maximizing discomfort.
