There is a kickstarter for a controller with a full QWERTY keyboard, digital D-Pad, 2 analogue nubs, 4 face buttons, Start, Select and 2 shoulder buttons with open source firmware. The factory can make them really quick. estimated date is nov 2012… It’s rare to see a kickstarter with an actual finished product on display ready for market or at least an estimated date before 2014..
I’ve got an iPad, nexus 7, raspberry pi and other devices and while I’m currently using a bunch of different ways to access it. full size wireless keyboard and mouse, ssh, vnc and all that fun stuff.. or maybe a robot.
