So it's a fan made image.

so what if it is a fan made image,

it is still a real thing being planned by IE and TT.

 

So my question still stands, when will we see them in action?

How do you know it's a real thing?  They don't look like the buttons on the images they actually put out.  They haven't shown an Amico game that would use four action buttons on the touchscreen in that pattern.  Usually action games have one action on the touchscreen.

You might see these used closer to launch or you might have to wait until after.

 

The set is meant for four phones that might be used for party or tabletop games.  Two buttons per phone would be applied in place of shoulder buttons.  You could put one button on an Amico controller as well.  That certainly is an option.

Those are neat concept art. The other tactile buttons are saying they will be released December 2022.

I think they have since said they are not including any with the console. So you will probably need to order ththeththem for like $10-$15 if you want a set.

I would love this to be true.

However, I would think they would need to be transparent so the underlying screen can display the overlay.  Hmm, underlay?  Why did Speedy Gonzales just pop into my head?

I agree.  I'd really like to see that as well.  I for one have fat finger pads, so I tend to smash the wrong character or are always off the touch point. Some non-visual material references would help.  That's how you play most Intellivision games.  Slide to the next bump.

 

Well played Speedy .... Lol.

If you want to test the experience with a very similar button for your smartphone, 
you can search for this on Ebay. I bought one, which also came with the fire buttons.

I don't think it's exactly the same as the Intellivision one, but it's very similar, and very cheap.
The idea of a touch-screen video-screen to use as virtual overlays was what first attracted me
to the design of the controller. Maybe we'll see somebody put a screen in a Jaguar controller! :-D

You can see how it works, which is cool, here.
