Thrustmaster has a new racing wheel that is coming to land along with the new Gran Turismo Sport racing game for the PS4. The Thrustmaster T-GT racing wheel is one of the most expensive gaming peripherals you can get your sweaty palms.
Do you love drumming your fingers on your car’s steering wheel while you drive? If Gregor “G-Man” Hanuschak has his way, soon you can actually make drum sounds when you tap on your steering wheel. G-Man invented Smack Attack, a steering wheel cover with 8 touch sensitive sensors.
If you have an iPad other than the first-generation device or the new iPad mini and you want a steering-wheel shaped holder that you can put the iPad into for your racing games, then the Kolos might be for you.
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.
There are tons of racing wheels out there for PS3 racing games and some of them have Force Feedback tech inside to make them more realistic. There are racing wheels for the Xbox 360 as well, but many of them just aren’t that good.

You can check out the full details at the USPTO‘s website, but here’s the short version: it’s a touch screen steering wheel, apparently for a portable gaming device, as shown in the above sketches.
