The Novint Falcon Does GDC


Joystiq has an entry showing the Novint Falcon haptic interface in use at this year’s GDC (I mentioned the device last year if you recall – reLink). The comments might be worth watching.

The Falcon reminds me of Sensable’s devices (Link) so it’s interesting to see a convergence between a sculpting tool like what Sensable makes and a gaming/interface device like the Falcon. All I can think now is, at under a $100, how ripe the Falcon will be for hacking. Combine that with an open source app like SharpConstruct and Sensable might have some competition.

The tools continue their downward migration.
