I hope it is a left hand keypad that you can connect your own mouse into. Like a Razer Tartarus but the keypad plugs directly into the console and has Bluetooth to your phone for changing settings.
Maybe even a small oled screen to show what profile you have selected, or a profile selector wheel?

This would be great for me as I have a small desk and even with a ten key less keyboard, my mouse space is only about 30cm2.

I'd bet it's a steam controller kind of gamepad. If the tech was more mature I would have also guessed something with eye tracking but that's probably further down the line.

I want a device like this I can use without breaking out a whole setup to play.

Obviously this is just a prototype but this one guy is trying to fix a problem that Sony, MS have not even tried to fix. With FPS so big on console I donít understand why. I donít understand why so many games use thumb sticks and there still are no buttons on the back of the controller to compensate. I donít understand why there is no modifier button. All easy fixes that should be standard but no one is even trying

Im surprised that everyone thinks itll be a physical device. What if new XIM is not a physical device but a blockchain crypto currency? Its not using proof of work, stake or space but proof of skill. The better you perform in a game the more XIM Tokens you will create. The XIM Apex will handle the skill measurement and takes things such as kills per minute, accuracy and ranked score into account.

:P ;)

 ;D

Really though, ObsIV's design philosophy for this thing was "comfort of a gamepad and performance of a mouse". That mixed with how much he gushed over the Steam controller at the time it launched and him saying that he'd like to do something like it in the future almost guarantees that that's what we're about to see. Unless it's something that's absolutely never been done before.

I was always thinking a XIM controller. Maybe one that works on both consoles and has a higher stick resolution similar to the Series X/One Controller.

Steam Controller is trash. He never received any cooperation out of Valve and moved on quickly.

It might have been poorly built and had ergonomic issues but the concept was good enough for ObsIV to be impressed by it. I didn't know he reached out to Valve, it sounded like he wanted to make his own take on it.

The most exciting angles and positions you can imagine from a XIM unit ;).
