Peregrine Gaming Glove turns your hand into a controller
by Mark R
The shot that you see to the left is my hand, taken at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle last weekend. It was here that I saw the booth for the Peregrine gaming glove.
As I tried on the Peregrine glove, and I couldn’t help but feel like Tom Cruise’s character from Minority Report. Granted, I didn’t have a giant glass display with motion controls, but I did have the ability to touch 30 points of my hand to get control in a game.
Even though I was at a gaming convention, I’m not too big in the MMO games. Many of the controls are quite complex, and attacks are often performed with by hitting some keys simultaneously. Sometimes having a hotkey on the Peregrine glove could easily give the player a great advantage. There is a video of it after the jump.
In other words, the Peregrine glove could be an alternative to a gaming keyboard. So the next time you are prepared to do some serious damage on World of Warcraft, be armed with a mouse in one hand, and a Peregrine gaming glove on the other hand.
There are other applications for this product besides gaming, like controls for AutoCad. It attaches to the computer via USB, but the cable is detachable, so the user is not handcuffed to their PC.
There is no word as to when it will be available, but it should be about $129.95.
