Novint Falcon in Snow Hard

b4We’re thinking about adding support for one of these, the Novint Falcon, to our upcoming game. They’re all kinds of awesome.

It’s a bit tricky though. Drivers are missing for both Mac and Linux. And while the game needs to update around 25 frames per second to feel smooth, the Falcon needs to update 1 000 times a second.

Perhaps more importantly, there are very few established conventions for how to use it in games. It’s important that the Falcon actually contributes to the game, lest it becomes a gimmick.

Regardless, it’s a very interesting piece of technology!
