The AUXBOX is supposed to be the most ergonomic fighting game controller and at an affordable price. Several years ago, the Bavarian innovator behind the concept made his first stickless controller, which served as the inspiration for the AUXBOX.

An early AUXBOX prototype


The AUXBOX strives to utilize all fingers with minimal movement from point to point that would otherwise expend time. The button size is 24 mm with a surface area that is comparable to 30 mm arcade buttons.

There are enough buttons to conquer your foes in modern games like Street Fighter 6. The buttons have a pleasant texture to them. The switches are low profile Cherry MX Silver Speeds, which are quieter than average.

There are three anti-slip pads made of foam at the bottom for stability purposes. While you can try to play with the AUXBOX on your lap, a desk would be more suitable for its smaller size.


The AUXBOX is 3D printed and based on the RP2040 chip that is easy to program with little input latency. The controller runs on the open source GP2040-CE firmware, and the USB-C cable is braided. There is an optional passthrough for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X compatibility, which would require your own dongle.

As for the case, it is made of PETG, and the buttons are PA12 nylon. You are seven screws away from unscrewing the bottom panel.


The AUXBOX has a simplistic look. While the layout is supposed to be ergonomic, an added benefit is that it makes the controller look cooler, especially because of the shape of the extra buttons.

The acrylic edition means that custom art is possible. We at The Arcade Stick can hook you up with a custom design through our art service.


The AUXBOX is a much needed breath of fresh air due to its innovation instead of being just another controller.
