Switchblade: A Cure for the Hunch?

Managing Editor Jon Wood recently sat down with the guys from Blue Orb, the company that has created Switchblade. Switchblade is a program that allows gamers to use an XBox 360 controller to play World of Warcraft.

Like many MMO players, over the last few years I find that I've developed the "gamer's hunch" whenever I sit down at the computer. You know the symptoms, your shoulders come forward, one hand goes to the mouse while the other hand goes straight for the WSAD keys. I've tried other things, like kicking back with the keyboard in my lap, but it's always seemed too big and bulky to be comfortable. Is it going to stop me from playing games? No. Does it keep me on the lookout for something that can help? Of course.

With that in mind, I sat up and took notice when ads started appearing on this site for the Switchblade, a device with the tagline: "Play World of Warcraft... With a 360 controller". The ad actually shows a guy suffering from "the hunch", and how using their product could help to alleviate it. I mean, the guy looks so happy in the after shot... Now, I want to be clear right now that this isn't a review of the product in question, that will come in time, but the ad did make me curious enough to book an interview with the guys over at Blue Orb, the company that developed the Switchblade.
