Photo 14 Apr The whole device is sculpted to fit a fairly large male hand, and the  smaller range of motion means it is more comfortable for a longer  period of time. The redesign means a large number of buttons are easily  and reliably accessible, and the player has greater control of character  movement.

Photo 14 Apr The whole device moves on a limited axis to replace WSAD character  movement. The three fingers on top have five buttons each. The middle  knuckle can push left or right on the tabs, and the fingertip can push  down, left or right for different functions. The thumb and little finger  also have two buttons.

The Novint Falcon is a 3d controller, and here is shown replacing a mouse in shooter games. Replacing the mouse isn’t where I’m going with this project, but it is an interesting take on controller innovation.
