Racing games are a blast in the arcade, but what makes them so compelling is the fully articulating racing seat that conveys the banked turns and the whiplashing hairpins. So, how do you bring that experience home?
The X Dream Gyroxus X-Box Gaming Chair is a contoured seat that turns when you turn and tilts when you tilt. They’ve billed it as a full motion controller, which we’d have to agree since the Xbox 360 (or PS3) controller comes built-in to the chair. And rightfully so, since it’s the special controller’s joystick that tells the chair which way it should bank and pitch. As a result there is no additional software to install or special hookups to add to your gaming console.
Dare I say it’s a deal, but you can grab one from BoysStuff for about $475 (£299.95).
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
