Google’s Project Yeti Controller Revealed

Looks like Google is serious about entering the gaming market.

One of the biggest rumors sparked from last year’s E3 was Google entering the gaming market with their own gaming console of sorts, known as the Yeti. While we’re still not completely sure of how the Yeti functions, other than the fact that game streaming will its key feature, at least we now have a lead on the controller.

Google's design for their new game controller has been revealed through patents made for the upcoming console, showing off sketches of the controller. Through the issued patent, we can get a handle on how the controller works and how it looks like.  


Through the patent designs, it was then revisualised by concept artist Sarang Sheth, who is an industrial designer by trade, as well as the Editor-In-Chief of Yanko Designs. He brought the designs to life and rendered them, giving us a close approximation on the real thing. The controller is pretty standard all things considered, 4 face buttons, 4 shoulder buttons, and whatnot.

Google’s Project Stream test run last year had users play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey through their Google Chrome browser. The Yeti hopefully surpasses that and gives us an experience like no other. Hopefully we'll see more of this new gaming platform soon.
