Suma Rubber Ball Controller for 3D PC Gaming Looking for Manufacturer to License the Fun

And you thought NVIDIA's 3D Vision was the height of 3D PC gaming this year. Coming straight out of the UK is Cambridge Consultants' Suma, a controller resembling a rubber stress ball which responds to the user's pressure and grip.


It carries out the commands thanks to built-in sensors, and is able to move the cursor in three dimensions, making it an easy pairing with PC gaming. Normally this sort of interaction is done with the use of a glove laden with sensors, but thanks to the inner workings of the Suma, the PC can translate each squeeze into software-readable form.

It's unlikely to hit the market in its current form, with Cambridge Consultants hoping to license it to peripheral manufacturers. Step forward, NVIDIA and Logitech. [Cambridge Consultants]
