Packaging Presentation & First Impressions: Looking at it for the first time you can’t help but notice how small and cute this controller is. Bearly bigger than your small finger it is as compact as possible. At least the buttons feel tactile and responsive.
What is it Like To Use in VR: While the heightened buttons are nice and tactile as is the joypad, it is next to impossible to get the right button every time due to the size of the controller. Using it as a clicker for Google Cardboard apps is fine because it only requires you to know where one of the buttons are. But using them all for more complex games is a whole other issue.

Final Verdict: This is a hard one to call. While it is a little too small to be used as a proper controller it works great as a Google Cardboard clicker and at a very affordable price. If you mostly play with apps that only require one button this might be a good choice for you. But if you play more in-depth games that require the full gamepad spread this is not going to cut the mustard.
