Google Daydream Controller Teardown : Red Flags

Google Daydream Controller Teardown : Red Flags

Our teardown of the Google Daydream controller shows how simple it is to control the virtual realm. What we expected was something similar to what the HTC Vive presents, in a slightly smaller form. What we've found is an interesting combination of chips, battery, and metal. While the outside might be fully ABS plastic in makeup, the internal structure has one piece of metal right where we did not expect it.

Razer and Nacon PS4 pro controllers aim at eSports Pros and hopefuls

Sony is talking up a pair of new controllers that are for the PS4 but aren't controllers that it has built. Rather these controllers are from two gaming firms that have long build aftermarket controllers that eSports pros prefer and amatures often find to perform better than Sony's own controllers. One of the controllers in question is the Razer Raiju and the other is the Nacon Revolution Pro Controller.

Steam gets native support for PS4 controllers

When it comes to playing PC games with a controller, the most common options gamers have is either a Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller. Valve's own Steam Controller is the most recent addition to the mix, but it comes with a steep learning curve and can sometimes require lots of customization to be used comfortably. Fortunately there will soon be another choice in the form of the other leading console controller: the PS4's DualShock 4.

PlayStation 4 Elite controller surfaces on Target’s website

Ahead of Sony’s event this month, a third-party PS4 controller called the ‘PlayStation 4 Elite Controller’ surfaced on Target’s website, only to be pulled a short time later.

The controller was originally listed as a pre-order item, but that pre-order was obviously premature given that the entire product listing has been taken down.

O6 rotary controller frees your eyes, lets your fingers do the work

O6 rotary controller frees your eyes, lets your fingers do the work

While we spend a lot of time on our smartphones, a good majority of the actions we do usually require no more than a few seconds of tapping. Those, however, require us to look at the screen, even for a short while, which can sometimes be dangerous. Voice control tries to mitigate that, but not all actions, or voices for that matter, can be accommodated. That is why Fingertips Lab, a company formed by former GM Innovation head P.K. Mishra, is introducing O6 ("oh-six"), a wireless rotary controller that lets your fingers do the talking, leaving your eyes free from distraction and keeping you out of danger.
