10/24/2011, Can your smartphone actually have enough muscle to function as a full fledged game console? I don’t think so, but perhaps what you see happen to the Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich might be the future – where USB hosting capability could very well see USB gamepads work on the smartphone, and when you have HDMI output thrown into the mix, this might very well end up […]

10/18/2011, Xbox 360 owners, you might soon have something worth bragging about compared to your Nintendo loving friends. Sure, they are going to go all out and purchase the Nintendo Wii U which will sport a display on the controller itself, which by the way is not the most original idea to date since the Sega Dreamcast already had such an attachment in the past. But I digress in this case […]
10/17/2011, How big of a steampunk fan are you? Are you a fan enough to blow $999 on a steampunk modified Xbox 360 controller? Well even if you don’t think you’d be willing to drop that amount of cash, here’s what you can expect should you change your mind.

09/08/2011, One of the best parts about the Xbox 360 Kinect is the fact that it doesn’t require any controllers – users just move their arms and bodies around in front of the camera to play the games. There’s no need for extra controllers or accessories. However, sometimes it’s hard to replace the feeling of holding a controller in your hand, i.e. games that require you to hold guns for shooting. […]

08/18/2011, Who says that video games are child’s play? Adults, too, enjoy their fair share of Mario. Well, boys in the military who grew up playing video games might have something else to cheer about when it comes to the latest gizmos and gadgets – we’re talking about the once humble video game controller helping our men in uniform operate real-life weapons against flesh-and-blood adversaries.

06/29/2011, Nintendo’s Wii U is a very different console. On the one hand it’s as beefy as a PS3 and Xbox 360 and capable of churning out HD graphics in full 1080p resolution. On the other hand, it’s got that 6-inch touchscreen motion controller that can beam content to and from the TV seamlessly without any noticeable lag. Do you know what would be great? If you could connect your $250 […]
06/21/2011, A Berkley-based company named Keith McMillen Instruments has come up with a way to let people control their computers using their feet. Called the SoftStep Foot Controller, this device resembles a large multi-effects pedal that guitarists sometimes use on stage when performing – which is fitting, considering that the SoftStep Foot Controller was initially designed with musicians in mind: people who wanted to control their computers in the recording studio, […]
05/13/2011, Evolving the controller has never been an easy task for any designer. Never mind that Nintendo has completely strayed from the traditional controller in favor of a waggling remote; how do you make the Xbox 360 controller – a gamepad considered to be one the best ones for any system ever and make it better? That’s the challenge Razer took up. Read on to find out if the Onza Tournament […]
05/06/2011, When touchscreen tablets were introduced to the world, people had to get used to a totally new method of computing, with the use of different multi-touch gestures to recreate certain functionalities that were normally done by a mouse and/or keyboard. While some functions were easier to perform with gestures, people still pined for the mouse as an additional input device. Well the folks at Cnet recently got a demonstration of […]
