Digital Life: One Minute With the Novint Falcon
The Novint Falon is a pretty wild force feedback game controller that can simulate everything from a gun's kick to running your hand (or that little plastic ball at least) over different textures (we touched slick ice, sticky molasses, and bumpy rock). It was pretty fun to play with for a few minutes, definitely a new experience, but the precision you're giving up by playing with it instead of a mouse is reason enough to not give it a second thought. Fun gimmick, though.
