    It is the powerglove 2.0 (or some number) but to me that thing would work best for games like DotA and the like. I am not sure how well it would work for something like Rift, WoW, EQ, etc.

    Don't think it would work all that well on an mmo, I get carpal tunnel just thinking of a long night of playtime. Bad news if you get a nose itch

    LOL yes a nose itch while to close to something that would whip the floor with you at that point in time would be bad indeed.

    Well i use a n52 to play so I don't see something like this being better, just from the fact I can have my hand on 5 keys with the n52. Unless I'm mistaking the tip of your thumb is the contact point, so that means a slower response in the game.

    The n52 is excellent, but this just seems gimmicky tbh.

    I would feel like a bit of **** sitting there wearing them as well lol :P

    The first time I saw an advert for the Peregrine was around April this year...I thought it was an April Fools.

    If my wife would see me wearing something like that, my wife will surely post my picture in wiki under dork and other unspeakable words.

    I'll start of that I am a huge fan of more keys or programmable keys. This seems interesting but I am sceptic for a MMO.

    Atm I have:
    G15 +18
    Mouse with 17 keys +2 (scroll wheel up and down)

    I often considerred footpedals and that band you put on your head that lets you set up controls but in the end the downsides of it aren't worth getting them.

    Same goes for that thing, I wouldn't want to wear that half of my game time simple because I don't like wearing gloves. Additionally I always rest my hands on mouse + keyboard so there wouldn't be much I could do with it on first sight.

    However what does come to mind is a none gaming approach, imagine a wall with a photo album and beeing able to control that ala minority report with your hand.

    Regards,
    Kalbuir

    I'm all for cool and innovative ideas but until someone comes up with something faster and more efficient than pressing keys on a keyboard I don't think it's ever going to catch on. Hmm what would be faster than key pressing? Neural interface perhaps if they ever made it work that well. The current neural interface technology fails badly though and I think it will be a long time until it doesn't.
