Interview William Provancher creator of Reactive Grip motion controller

It has been a while since we acquainted you with Reactive Grip, a motion controller with tactile feedback for playing RPG games with swords or knifes. Since then a lot of improvements have been made to the Reactive Grip since it was first revealed  at Game Developer Conference (GDC) 2013 and now it is all set to hit Kickstarter soon (by the end of October). It is lighter and slimmer with the addition of ergonomically integrated trigger, thumbstick and buttons. The feedback of this motion controller has got even better and it is compatible with Sixense STEM tracking system with mounting options for trackers such as Razer Hydra. The controller is 7.25 inches (19 cm) as compared to the 11 inch (28 cm) height of the previous Reactive Grip.  So, it was high time we got a personal one-on-one view of what William Provancher has to say about this cool technology and the subsequent product created using it.

Reactive Grip controller by Tactical Haptics

In the quest to take virtual reality in gaming and other correlated applications a step closer to the much craved reality, Tactical Haptics has come up with an impressive tactile-feedback system for motion-controlled input devices, the Reactive Grip created by Professor William Provancher shown off at the Game Developers Conference 2013. Frankly speaking this motion-controlled controller is way off the charts as it will change the way you sway and swing swords in games like Prince of Persia or Assassin’s Creed. You could be stabbing and slicing up your enemies and getting the real time sensation of doing so, or shooting bullets at your enemies and feeling the sensation of real feedback. Using motion tracking system, the tactile feedback with Reactive Grip controller is built around a Razer Hydra which has been modded according to the requirements with a 3D printed housing with sliders that move up or down for the real time sensation.

Free roll machined gamers dice

Looks like there is now a brewing trend for precision dices amongst the common masses too as projects up on crowd-funding websites are successfully funding projects like Machined Precision Dice. One thing probably missing in that very project was the edged dice design which is now dying a bit in the professional gambling games. However this D6 Free Roll, machined gamers dice by SPIEL Designs has a rounded off triangulated corner design so that the dice doesn’t get stuck on one face and has every chance to roll over more increasing probability of a fair game. Made from machined solid aluminium, the dice is much more durable than other ordinary ones that in fact destroy your game board by cutting it through the sharp edged design.
