Meet ZRRO, a revolutionary new way to control your TV

February 20th, 2015 at 11:24 AM
ZRRO Touch Controller Kickstarter

Every time a new Android-based gaming console pops up on Kickstarter, I assume it will be the last, but ZRRO has something more to offer than what we’ve seen from the endless parade of Ouya knockoffs that have dominated the crowdfunding scene over the past few years.

ZRRO is both an Android console and a hover / touch controller that will turn your television into an enormous, interactive tablet. With the ZRRO Pad, you’ll be able to control Android apps and games with the same taps and swipes you would on a phone or tablet, even when you’re not directly touching the controller.

When your fingers are “hovering” over the controller, it can still detect the movement. Here’s how it works:

  • Hovering enables you to target your finger to the right place while keeping your eyes on the TV
  • Touching is used to select, as on any touch screen
  • Pinch, Swipe, Drag and all other touch gestures are supported
  • An embedded accelerometer and vibration feedback complete the gaming experience

The box itself is said to be as capable as any other Android device on the market. It can even stream content in 4K resolution. If you want to know more about the project, specifically the technical details behind the controller, it’s worth checking out the team’s Kickstarter page.
