If you’re a fan of PC or console racing simulation games like rFactor and you want to make the game as realistic as possible, you need a good racing wheel and pedals. More specifically, you need a force feedback racing wheel, so you can feel what your VR car is doing.
One of the coolest features of the new Xbox One is the extra vibration motors in the triggers. These add a new sensation to gameplay which can provide feedback directly to your fingertips. Now, there’s a mod available for the Xbox 360 controller which adds a similar feature.
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.
Researchers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology have developed a cooking simulator that combines a conventional frying pan with modern technology. I know, right? Cooking isn’t hard at all! Or so my siblings tell me every time I complain that there’s nothing to eat.
If I buy or play a video game on a console, you can bet that it will be some sort of racing game. I save all other game types for my PC. The thing I like best about racing games like Gran Turismo 5 on the PS3 is that many of them work with force-feedback racing wheels.
