Another new iOS 7 controller emerges from CES 2014, and boy does it look familiar

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

And controllers don't get much better than the Xbox design that Microsoft has spent the last decade plus perfecting. So it makes sense that the new wireless RP One controller from Signal looks pretty much exactly like an Xbox 360 controller, besides the symmetrical stick placement on the RP One (the Xbox 360's are askew).

All the same buttons are present, including four face buttons, two analog sticks, a directional pad, shoulder buttons, and triggers. It reportedly comes with ten hours of battery life, not to mention a charging dock for iPads, iPhones, and iPod touches. You can also use both the controller and the iOS 7 device while they charge.

Expect to see the Signal RP One some time in the first half of 2014 for $99.99. Between this, the SteelSeries Stratus, and others, the iOS 7 controller market is really heating up.
