Even though it's a prototype it looks better than analogue but is not 1:1 movement. Honestly I would have preferred a track ball in the right side.

But you can also change the sensitivity but it still won't be as good. Fortunately they are extremely moddable, if someone can easily come up with a trackball version I'm in.

Fantastic display of the controller.

I'm really hyped for it! I'd love to see how well it fares in Fighting Games, as well as more action-y sections of FPS Games.

I was hesitant at first, but this video showed me how cool this idea really is.

To be fair, solid, neither racing or flight sims ever worked well on a mouse or keyboard to begin with. No one is stopping you from using a wheel or a joystick in the living room.

Because this device is designed to substitute a mouse and keyboard. It's also designed to be a controller, yes, but its fundamental principles are designed around the concept of emulating keyboard and, especially, mouse input in the living room. It is not designed to be a joystick or a wheel. If you want to play a fight sim, use the proper controller, a joystick.
