Kickstarter here and hands-on here
Miami, Florida, May 8-- Inventor David Kotkin announced today the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for the Delta Six: his new game controller that will take first person shooter games like the newly announced Call of Duty: Ghosts to the next level. Kotkin hopes that this revolutionary controller will impress the mature gamer audience.

With its sophisticated features and realistic aesthetics, the Delta Six has also impressed former executives from Activision. Here's how Kotkin describes his discussions with them:
"They saw the great potential and were very interested in the possibilities. We discussed how it could be compared to IMAX movies and how you have to offer more to not be taken over by the competition." Kotkin continued, "We were in agreement that Delta could be a Blockbuster with the proper support. They saw Kickstarter as a good test to see if they will give that support."
The Delta Six mirrors the look of a modern military combat rifle, including real time aiming as well as a kickback sensation. The Delta Six was developed using IR sensors, accelerometers and gyroscopes to provide unparalleled arcade experience. The Delta Six is compatible with XBOX, Play Station 3, and PC systems. The Delta Six can also be upgraded to the Next Generation systems like Playstation 4 with a downloadable patch. Kotkin also said, "The coding for the Delta will be using an Arduino programming language, making personal coding easy."
IGN has positively reported, "Not only is this coolest controller, but it makes the player using it look like a total badass."
"It's always difficult to gauge the quality of gun controllers without actually trying one out, but it appears the ambitious Delta Six is in some competent hands as It's creator also made the highly-praised Avenger Controller."
