Smartfish Tru:Motion Wireless Mouse and Pro:Motion Game ControllerSmartfish has introduced its Tru:Motion Wireless Mouse and Pro:Motion Game Controller that offers up a new way to game on your computer. The Tru:Motion Wireless Mouse was designed in partnership with the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York and features a pivot-motion that is ergonomic and comfortable, because the user’s wrist remains in a fixed state. Ambidextrous folks and lefties will love it and it will come with optical tracking, scroll wheel, and an aluminum finish.

The SmartFish Pro:Motion Game Controller, this is said to be the first intelligent and healthy “injury avoidance” ergonomic controller that totally does away with the risk of RSI and carpel tunnel syndrome(Yeah sure).

Monster MCC AV50 Home Theater Controller? Or 1970′s Sci-Fi prop?

Posted in Remotes by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2009

Monster MCC AV50 Home Theater ControllerThis new remote from Monster looks like a vintage Sci-Fi prop. The bad kind. You can almost hear the cheesy sound effects and bad soundtrack. Which is why I think this is awesome. The Monster MCC AV50 Home Theater Controller will be available next month for $50.

It’s a “tabletop universal remote control” with a “Web-based setup.” That means it’s super huge and has a simple onscreen setup.

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2009

Classic Controller Pro appears at E3Here’s an interesting story. The guys over at Joystiq spotted a pair of Classic Controller Pros for the Wii at Nintendo’s E3 booth. What’s unusual about this is that it still hasn’t been announced for release outside of Japan.

Nintendo reps at the booth apparently know nothing, or they just weren’t saying anything about a planned release. There’s also no official word on the E3 press site. Yet the controllers were there in all their Wii-white glory.

Halo 3 ODST Limited Edition controllerIt’s slightly ironic that on the same day we get details about Microsoft’s Project Natal, which provides hands-free gaming, we get word of this awesome Halo 3 ODST limited edition controller. It’s the big M’s way of saying, “You don’t need controllers anymore, but we’d like to really still milk these things for all their worth.

The Halo 3: ODST-themed controller comes with the $99 collector’s version of the game. How can you resist? It’s a Halo themed controller, after all. Get ‘em while you can. Soon controllers will be a thing of the past…Not really.

Ultimate DJ controller from NumarkWe’ve seen DJ Hero’s turntable/controller, so here’s the controller from The Ultimate DJ . It looks just like we saw in the screenshot.

It’s a free-spinning, touch-sensitive turntable to the left with five Akai Pro MPC-style drum pad triggers next to a cross-fader. Looks like you’ll be able to upload your own samples with a compatible USB mic as well as use the preloaded ones and you can rotate the mixer to the left if you are a lefty.

Wii dart controllerIf you have to throw your Wiimote at the TV, it might as well resemble a dart. Now it can thanks to this new add-on kit from PEGA that turns your Wiimote controller into a giant… dart.

It’s designed specifically for games like PDC World Championship Darts. The kit adds a soft arrow tip and feather-shaped tail to your Wii controller, making it more like a lawn dart than a regular dart. Hey, if you have to throw it through your TV it might as well be dressed appropriately.

Tony Hawk Ride game includes motion-sensing skateboard controller

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on May 15th, 2009

Tony Hawk RideTony Hawk’s new game will come with a skateboard peripheral so you can do all kinds of amazing tricks. The motion controls are pretty detailed and feature an advanced mode that will allow for in-place 180s, but it doesn’t look like you’ll be lifting the board off the ground.

Grabs are performed by actually grabbing the board as it senses your hand position, and pushing is performed by running your foot along the side of the board. Obviously, ollies and flip tricks are going to be different than the real thing.

They’ve confirmed that Microsoft is in fact “developing a new videocamera for its Xbox 360 videogame console that will allow players to control games with the movement of their bodies,”.

Unlike Nintendo’s Wii, the Microsoft camera won’t require gamers to “hold any hardware in their hands to control in-game action,”. We may just see it debut at E3.

At last, a fishing pole controller for the Xbox 360

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2009

At last, a fishing pole controller for the Xbox 360I don’t know how many times I’ve been playing a fishing game on the Xbox 360, only to be disappointed that my fish got away due to a crappy fishing pole. Well, no more. Never again will I lose a fish and throw my plastic rod into the TV.

Thanks to “The Strike,” coming this fall, I’ll get “realistic lake bottom topography, life-like fish behaviors” and more. Time to get in some practice with paperclip fish and a magnet on my line. And if you don’t like fishing games, this thing looks quality enough to beat people with.

Silver DualShock 3 controller spotted at GamestopYou’re probably getting mighty sick of that all-black DualShock 3 controller. Colorware is one option, but who wants to lay out that much money just to paint a controller? Luckily for you GameStop has your back. Assuming you like silver.

Today, the website has a listing for a silver version of the wireless SIXAXIS controller. It’s actually been available on the Japanese market forever, but those of us in North America can finally have a crack at it now.

The Shoebox Fightstick: Al Bundy's mod of choiceThings are getting really really bad in these economically tough times. The modders seem to be hit the hardest. Need evidence? How about the Tupperware arcade stick? Need more? Check out these Shoebox Fightsticks.

They were created using Xbox 360 controllers, Happ joysticks and 14 buttons…in a pair of shoeboxes for cases. On the up side, Al Bundy has moved from women’s to men’s shoes. Sadly business is slow and this is the result. It beats spending time with the wife.

Apple Magic Wand controller patentApple may be looking into a wireless remote wand to power the next generation of Apple TV media systems, offering the cursor on the Apple TV display the kind of accuracy a mouse gives the cursor on a PC. Just like millions of Nintendo Wii owners around the world.

Unlike the current 5-button remote for the current version of Apple TV, the wand would be capable of controlling a bunch of new operations and applications that may be available from the media system, including zoom operations, a keyboard application, an image application, an illustration application, and a media application.

nincaseLooking for a neat place to hide those game codes as well as your various tiny trinkets and doodads? Well, here it is. A trinket box in the form of an original classic NES controller.

It’s from Etsy seller GeekGear. All of the buttons are glued into place, making look just as it did before it was modified. Great for keys, spare change, a thin usb stick may even fit inside. It’s storage is a little limited since the inside plastic has not been sanded down, but we love the simplicity of it.

Playstation controller fossils coming to a future near you

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2009

Playstation controller fossils coming to a future near youOne day, hopefully when the planet is not ruled by apes that evolved from men, fossils like the one above will be commonplace. And while you might not dig up as many Zune fossils as say, the iPod, they will give those in the future some idea of what we have been up to.

These fossils are hand-made in Austin by artist Christopher Locke. Each one represents a different piece of “modern” technology that has already become extinct. He has also collaborated with the local Goodwill computer and electronics recycling program, insuring that there is zero e-waste from this project.
