The GameKlip attaches your Android phone to a real full sized Sony Dualshock3 controller for a full mobile gaming experience. The gaming accessory simply snaps on to your controller providing an easy way to mount your Android phone. In order for the Playstation 3 controller to pair with your Android phone you need to get the Sixaxis Controller App from the Google Play store. The GameKlip comes in both wired play cables ($23) and wireless ($15). Unfortunately, the app only works with Android, no word for the iPhone app yet.
According to the GameKlip website, The Galaxy S3 easily supports the wired connection to a Dualshock 3 controller. So keep in mind, not all Android phones support wired connections! Watch the video below.

Google has a long history of pulling April Fools’ day hoaxes, this time the prank-happy web giant has released a video explaining a new joke app that introduces an alternative to the QWERTY keyboard on Android phones. It’s a two-key typing interface called Google Tap, and it’s based on Morse Code, the telegraph communication system consisting of combinations of dots and dashes that correspond to letters of the alphabet.
One of the best April fools pranks that Google pulled was the Gmail Tab and the Google Maps for 8-bit NES. In my opinion, Google did the prank videos for two reasons. First, to get more publicity both online and offline to increase traffic. Second, to test the peoples reaction on whether these ideas might work or not. So don’t be surprised if these jokes might turn into reality one day. You’ll never know.
