During E3 2017 the Controller Crusade team had the chance to check out Bionik’s lineup of accessories for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Playstation VR. What stood out for us was how Bionik aesthetically matched all of their products to their respective consoles, and how they’re looking to provide affordable solutions to what first party components are lacking, such as the Switch’s battery life, and the PS VR’s lack of a solid headphone solution. Here’s a quick look at four products that stood out during our Bionik E3 2017 booth tour.
Looking to eliminate the potential tangled mess of wiring and provide a cleaner listening solution to your Playstation VR experience, Bionik is releasing the Mantis. The Mantis comes with an effortless clip-on mounting method, and is so lightweight you won’t even notice any extra weight to your headset. The Mantis also matches the Playstation VR’s color and texture scheme, blending in perfectly to give a complete look.
For those Xbox One players looking to get an edge on the competition, Bionik’s Quickshot is for you. The Quickshot is applied to your Xbox One controller by using Bionik’s application tool, and provides not only trigger locking mechanisms, but nice textured grips as well. Bionik’s Quickshot is available now.
The first of the two Nintendo Switch charging solutions we had the chance to view is the Power Plate. The Power Plate is a portable power system, capable of fully charging the Nintendo Switch tablet, or charge two Joy-Con controllers more than 3 times. The high capacity Li-ion battery pack comes with a carrying bag and USB type C adapter, so Switch players can conveniently charge on the go.
The last Nintendo Switch charging solution we viewed was Tetra Power, a quad port charging dock for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers. The Tetra Power is equipped with LED status indicators, and aesthetically matches your Nintendo Switch. The Tetra Power also has a built-in cable management system for customized cable length and easy storage.
