Control everything with your eyes
What previously only sounded like a vision of the future is now a reality. Eye Tracker 5 from Swedish Tobii is exactly what it sounds like, namely a gadget that lets you control games with the naked eye. Control the driver’s gaze in real time instead of using the joystick, highlighting the enemy with just your gaze, or sharing your eye movements as you stream games.
All in one control for the TV box
Smart TV boxes like Shield TV and the like have many advantages over sitting in front of the computer, but one of these is unfortunately not the input itself. One problem is that you will need a certain number of free USB ports for keyboard, mouse and gamepad. Or you get this hybrid control, which in addition to power crosses and small keys is also equipped with a touchpad for navigation.
Everyone has the right to play
Regular hand controls, or mouse and keyboard for that matter, do not suit everyone. Then we are talking especially about people who for various reasons are disabled, and thus can not use the input methods completely optimally. Fortunately, there is a cure for that, through the Xbox Adaptive Controller. It can best be described as a hybrid between keyboard and hand control, and also acts as a hub for other inputs. Xbox and PC users can then connect everything from buttons, pedals and joysticks to headsets and one-handed controls.
When ergonomics are most important of all
Do you work in front of the computer for days on end? Then you may have been faced with various problems related to the location of the mouse? Regardless, an ergonomic alternative is always preferable, such as this “mousetrapper” keyboard with built-in mouse pad. Make your everyday work more comfortable, or control your computer directly from the couch via bluetooth.
No, it is not a broken keyboard, but just a so-called split keyboard with cool lighting. Gain more control over the ergonomics, or put it together for those occasions when you lack the “regular” layout. As an added bonus, you can reprogram the lighting as you wish.
Hybrid keyboards for serious gamers
Tired of the regular keyboards and want to try something new? Razers Tartarus Pro may be the answer to the question no one asked, namely whether we really need 32 programmable buttons for our gaming needs. Regardless of the answer, we can not ignore that it at least seems to have taken inspiration from the usual game controls, by offering an analog lever for the control. Maybe something for you who are in transition between game console and PC gaming?
The monster hybrid
If you thought the previous keyboard was odd, now comes something that is perhaps even more odd. This claw-like, and somewhat monstrous, hybrid possesses a number of adjustable functions and buttons. These can be completely adapted to your own hand and your fingers, and are also equipped with a cushion that makes playing more comfortable. A certain learning curve is also included in the purchase.
Give new life to an old classic
Remember the Nintendo Wii? The classic game console became one of the best-selling, precisely because of its simple fan controls and favorable price. There is a good chance that you, or someone close to you, have a pair of “Wiimotes” in a closet or storage room. What many do not know is that they use bluetooth to communicate with the Wii device. Therefore, they can also be paired with your PC for different purposes. Maybe to flip through pages in a Powerpoint presentation?
