Reactive Grip Haptic Feedback Motion Controller Adds Shake Shake to Pew Pews

I don’t really care much for tactile feedback in videogames, but if you’re into that sort of immersion, Tactical Haptics is working on a device that’s right up your alley. At the 2013 Game Developers Conference, the company showed off a prototype motion controller with a unique haptic feedback system.

The company calls its technology Reactive Grip. The current prototype, which uses parts from a Razer Hydra motion controller, has four bars on the grip that can move up and down independently of each other. Not only does it look like a naughty toy, apparently it’s also great at emulating a sense of weight and movement.

It seems like many people believe that first-person games will continue to be central to the future of gaming, what with technologies like the Reactive Grip as well as the Oculus Rift. I’m waiting for floor tiles that light up and a machine that spews numbers into the air to make tactical RPGs more immersive.
