ForceTek XIO, a gaming controller that hurts you.
We know the Wiimote, PlayStation Move and Kinect are awesome, but there’s one more gaming controller that actually makes you feel the games, and also may hurt you. At E3 this week, this not-so-famous company called “ForceTek” (name matches there product) demo’ed there new gaming controller “XIO Virtual Gaming System” – pretty fancy name if you ask us, for a “force-feedback arm exoskeleton that provides a controlled resistance to your arm and wrist movement”, ahem. Except the fact that after “wearing” this controller you look more like a cyborg, these controllers are pretty cool – imagine feeling the recoil of your gun in game, or feeling the explosions going around you in the game, it may even break your arms if they break in the game (we hope not), what else you want, right? It will come next year when ForceTek will ship this “unique” thing at “competitive prices”. See the videos below if you wanna know more about it, and see it in action!
