Mad Catz' engineers have gone insane.

Open it up and you've got a game controller with all the standard bells and whistles, as well as some non-standard bells and whistles like a mouse sensor pad and a built-in microphone for voice search. Slap on the included QWERTY keyboard attatchment and you've got a handy input device for your Android microconsole or PC game chat.

Connect the phone clip and you've got an alien robot with a phone for a head

Then things start getting weird. You can break the Lynx apart, attach it to the included tablet stand and turn an up to seven inch Android tablet into this freaky-looking thing.

All of this, plus the Lynx comes standard with an HDMI cable so you can take the controller off of the tablet stand and hook the device to your television for big-screen gaming.
That's the most ridiculous controller I've ever seen in my life.

I'LL TAKE 12.

Even tho it looks a little silly, I must admit, its pretty damn cool. Now if the price is right, my OPO would love one.

Edit: $300

No, a handy input device for PC GAME CHAT is the keyboard you have attached to your damn PC!!!

Wow Frick, nice find...
believe it or not i have been looking to buy both a MOGA Pro controller to make my kids play with a Sony Ultra Z that i purchased just for that reason but i also was looking into Aliexpress for something that could be attached to a Dell Venue 8 that my kids also use for playing..

I might have found the best of both worlds....

And i dig the design it looks awesome, my kids will love it!

EDIT: hhmmmm i did not read well the post and i missed the most important part... $300 dollars? Really? I can buy an Nvidia Shield with that for eff sake!

Ok, so forget what i said, Madcatz can keep their transformer...

I'd never pay that amount for it but I would like a PC game controller with a small detachable keyboard like the Xbox 360 controller's keyboard attachment which doesn't work on PC.

Are they mad!? $300!?!? , you can almost buy a shield tablet , xb1 , ps4 , hell even gtx970 for that price , who in there right mind would spend anything over $60 for a controller!

Not to mention I wouldn't trust my money with Mad Catz they have been making junk since the N64/PS1 days!

HAHAHA!

I had a MadCatz Rumble Pack integrated controller for the N64 literally rattle itself in half, it was interesting. It was one of those crap transparent ones that all us stupid teens were into back in the day.

Lol I'm dying , I had a N64 with two Nintendo controllers and two madcatz controller and when me and my freinds would play Goldeneye we would fight for the two Nintendo ones , omg I don't even know how they called that an analog stick , you could shake the controller and the stick would every direction, not to mention the ajustable handles would pinch your skin!

Just tried to look for a picture of it on google images but no look, I guess no one was proud enough of it to take a pic! Lol
