The main attraction was the memory pack, other than that, most of the functionality existed in other adapters. Bliss-Box originally set out to copy all of its functionality without the need for a driver. Today (June 2021) marks that day with the final accomplishment completed (memory packs). To say all of this is done without a driver is a bit incorrect as the HID system in its self is a driver. So to point it more to a fine point, it does all of this without needing to install a manufacture driver.

The Bliss-Box Gamer-Pro
Compatible with virtually every controller and peripheral in existence. (see tested Compatibility List). The Gamer-Pro uses low cost adapter cables which allow controllers to plug into its HDMI ports. This gives you an unparalleled capacity to play with different types of controllers at once or to swap and configure controllers on the fly. Features custom firmware so the Gamer Pro can be switched into modes compatible with the Switch, PS3, Xbox and even regular USB devices like the Raspberry Pi and MiSTer.
