Play wherever you want, longer, and more precisely, with highly customizable, portable controllers.
TandemPad is a modular and transformable controller, designed to fill the gap between a gamepad and a mouse & keyboard. Ergonomic, wireless design allows you to play comfortably wherever you are: at home, on a trip, outdoors, on a plane. The built-in powerbank prolongs gameplay, and the touchpad gives you a mouse-precision level of experience!
TandemPad consist of two components, Bunch and Stick, which can work separately or together. They can be also combined with a mouse, a keyboard or a mobile device (smartphone/tablet), so that they become an additional sub-controller, main screen, or an additional screen, e.g. as a map preview.
MOBILITY - full gaming experience wherever you are, thanks to powerful, but portable and compact controllers, easy to take with you everywhere.
FLEXIBILITY – use Bunch and Stick together, separately, or combine them with a mouse, keyboard and mobile device.
PRECISION – shoot like a pro, no matter the conditions! Mouse-precision level thanks to the built-in touchpad, precious for FPS gamers.
SHARABLE POWER STOCK – prolong your game thanks to the built-in powerbank that can power controllers, as well as phones/tablets, if needed.
Gamer’s Thumb or Gamer’s Wrist have innocent sounding names, but they are serious injuries like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or de Quervain’s Syndrome, caused by regular and prolonged playing. That’s because of poor – or a lack of – ergonomics in current gaming solutions. In short: keyboards unnaturally bend your phalanges and overexploit the elbows, and gamepads require circular movements which are too intense for the thumbs.
TandemPad was designed with a focus on proper ergonomics:
TandemPad combines advantages of portable controlling solutions and mouse & keyboard systems, while eliminating their biggest flaws.
TandemPad is the most customizable controlling solution, so you can create your own, unique, and the most comfortable layout. All buttons are highly adaptive, acting as a classic key, virtual key (e.g. as SHIFT on PC keyboard), or performing multiple actions depending on the number of clicks (up to three). Together, the multitude of keys and multiple action modes offer over 1 billion keystroke combinations to fit your needs perfectly!
Take advantage of its modular design, as well as its compatibility with other controllers and mobile devices, to create your own, customized set. It doesn’t matter if you seat, stand or lie down – always play comfortably and with high precision!
TandemPad brings new quality wherever a controlling device is needed. Check out few of the countless possibilities!
Put an end to the nightmare of using Smart TV remote for more complicated activities! Use Stick to execute all functions more comfortably. Instead of scrolling menus for ages, or worse – typing titles with arrows, jump to the place you want with just a single click!
Navigate your presentations and pitches in a more professional way. Configure Stick buttons to trigger needed shortcuts in application, and use a touchpad to control the cursor – like with a mouse, except in any position (even standing, walking).
Reach for Bunch to save space on your desk. It’s small, compact, heavily configurable and easy to use. You can grab it with one hand, so in combination with a graphic touchpad, it can bring a new performance dimension for your project.
TandemPad can be used in a variety of ways, depending on your needs and preferences. Here are a few suggestions on the configuration and layouts.
Both sub-controllers can work as parts of a bigger set (e.g. with a mouse and keyboard), only with each other, or independently.
You can use them like a classic game-pad.
Using buttons and the touch pad, you can play a bit like with a keyboard & mouse.
You can use your smartphone as Bunch's virtual extension…
…or as a monitor for a game controlled by Bunch…
…or by Stick, if you're looking for a high precision touchpad.
Your smartphone can also act as Stick’s virtual controller,
a single multimedia controller together with Bunch and Stick,
or a monitor for a game controlled by Bunch and Stick.
Both sub-controllers can cooperate with a mouse,
or with a keyboard.
Bunch’s reverse buttons can be clicked in a “classic” way, but you can also use the middle part of your fingers to fire up in-game combinations faster.
Averse buttons can be used as functional keys, or similarly to an analog cross on a game-pad.
Depending on the joystick inclinations, different actions can be executed. You can use this functionality, for example, for the crouch-walk-run movement in games.
Stick is designed for the 1-2-3 approach in the games: focus-aim-fire.
Mini touchpad can be used for regular scrolling or click-to-switch actions.
The joystick can be configured to work as functional buttons, which could be useful e.g. for a weapon-wheel manipulation in action games.
In case of a placement like below, the main touchpad buttons can be used similarly to a game-pad’s left and right triggers.
TandemPad made me get rid of my PC completely. Thanks to it, I can play any title on my smartphone. Without any compromises, restrictions or limitations.
The trip to work has stopped being so boring since I can take my favorite action games with me on the bus.
PC, console, smartphone or big TV screen - now I can utilize each of them using just one device and it’s really cool!
Photoshop + 3dsMax + Bunch. Nothing more, nothing less.
One battery is enough for a trip to the grandparents. The children have stopped whining and I can finally drive in peace. TandemPad improves road safety :)

TandemPad is a modular adaptive controller designed as the missing link between keyboard & mouse and gamepad.
TandemPad combines all advantages that a mouse, keyboard and gamepad have, while eliminating their shortcomings. It’s handy, mobile, has a billion button combinations, a built-in powerbank and can be extended with a smartphone.
Both sub-controllers, Bunch and Stick, work similarly to alternative products. Pressing a button triggers an action in the game. Each button can play a few different roles. The smartphone is not paired with the controllers and can work completely independently.
Wherever a mouse, keyboard or gamepad can be used, the TandemPad can be used too. Most consoles, PCs and smart TVs, which support pluggable devices, can work with TandemPad.
TandemPad was designed mainly for shooters, action games and RTS, but any game can be played comfortably.
It’s a technology that can change the role of a single button and emit a signal depending on the user’s preference or frequency of clicks.
It’s a technology in which a specific button doesn’t emit any signal itself, but changes the role of other buttons. It works similarly to SHIFT or ALT on the PC keyboard.
Each controller is assigned with a simple text file that can be edited in any word processing program. There is also a dedicated application that does the same thing in a more intuitive way.
The controller’s internal memory allows you to save multiple configuration files. The player who is currently using the TandemPad can change profiles to use the button layouts defined by him.
TandemPad battery power is shared with smartphones. Thanks to that, much longer gameplay is possible without plugging your phone into an electric socket.
