CES Hardware Round Up – Two

Posted Jan 18, 2010 by Jon Wood

CES Hardware Round Up – Two

Last week, Carolyn Koh reported on some of the technology see saw demoed at the recent Consumer Electronis Show in Las Vegas. Today, she returns with even more innovative gadgets for gamers.

The Peregrine Glove

There’s gaming peripherals and there’s gaming peripherals but where some of these guys are going is pretty much pushing the envelope.

The Peregrine Glove is eons ahead of the old Nintendo Power Glove. Remember that? It was imprecise and clunky. Not so the Peregrine. Flexible, breathable, washable, it fits your hand… well, like a glove! With over 30 touchpoints and a simple intuitive program to calibrate it, I watched a developer play League of Legends with it and tried it out myself. You can’t make false actions by accidentally touching the contact points on a table as the actions are based on closing circuits, i.e. you connect a touchpoint to an activator pad. Targeted toward MMO players, each touchpoint can be mapped to a skill, key or macro. You can use your mouse with your right hand, and with the glove, could be hurling a fireball by touching thumb and fore finger, a lightning bolt with thumb and fourth finger and tapping your palm for an AE spell. Currently only available for the left hand, it has a price point of $149.99, is made to military specs (although they wouldn’t say why), and is shipping in the first quarter of 2010.
