Back in February 2012 Think Geek unveiled the 8-bitty, a retro-styled controller for iOS and Android devices. Today, the 8-bitty made an appearance on the FCC, winning approval for its Bluetooth wireless capabilities. FCC documents for the 8-bitty include external photos, above, as well as internal photos, which show of the controller’s Broadcom BCM20730 processor. The 8-bitty’s user manual is included in Think Geek’s filing as well, and unfortunately it appears that the controller requires a screwdriver to open its battery door…retro indeed.
The 8-bitty will cost $30. A release date is not yet available for the controller, but you can view the 8-bitty’s product page on Think Geek here.
