Left 4 Dead, Counter-Strike: Source and Day of Defeat will also soon receive similar updates.
The $150 Novint Falcon (shown left with optional pistol grip) was released in 2006. The three-dimensional "haptic" device is operated by a small spherical grip connected to three robotic arms.
The device's motors react to in-game events, with the end result being an elaborate force-feedback system. Damage jostles the grip accordingly, while weapons have different weights and produce varying amounts of kick-back.
Check out a short demonstration of the device below:
... when you just have to have a controlled shaped like a gun shooting a dude in the face.
Seems like it was only meant to work with that close range game...
