Perfect for FPS fans
The video game market isn't short of first person shooters these days. With franchises like Call of Duty being released on a yearly basis there's clearly a lot of demand out there for the genre.
However, it's easy to see how people may feel that they can't get into the game with a normal controller, and for this reason inventor David Kotkin has created the Delta Six, a new controller which takes the form of a combat rifle.
The controller features real time aiming as well as a kickback sensation when you fire to make the gaming experience all the more immersive. It was developed using IR sensors, accelerometers and gyroscopes and as a result gives the player a more arcade-like experience when playing a first person shooter.
Kotkin has started up a Kickstarter campaign in order to get some funding for his new innovation and with 29 days to go, it has already raised more than $30,000 of its $100,000 goal.
According to the Kickstarter page the Delta Six is compatible with Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC and can also be upgraded to the "next generation systems" with a downloadable patch.
