+Gear was developed in a small town in Switzerland. After years of extended gaming (some would say “obsessive”) we were fed up with the design of standard controllers. After prolonged arguing and doing nothing to improve the situation, we finally decided to design add-ons to the existing options.
With a small team of graphic and product designers, we developed +Gear: from gamers, for gamers. Why we think it’s a good product? Because it improved our gaming experience. +Gear stands for more intuitive an ergonomic gaming; thanks to an attachable scroll wheel and faster trigger reaction and the possibility to press more buttons without having to change your preferred hand position.
Indeed, we claim that +Gear improved our gaming experience so much, that we have no one left to blame for losing except us.
All products are 3d printed. This allows us to continually improve our products and cost effective customization according to your wishes. Furthermore, the packaging is designed and produced by ourselves.
The filament employed is based on biodegradable lactic acid. While we know it’s still plastic, we strive to develop products which have the least impact on our environment. For the same reason, the packaging is made by us, in order to reduce shipping.
Because we care about our planet.
+Gear is mainly designed by Silvan and Juan. We have been friends for more than a decade and decided to put our knowledge to use.
Silvan has been working as graphic designer, whereas Juan recently finished his product design studies. Because we have separate views on how a product should look, feel and function, +Gear is the best of our two worlds.
