Impulse Neurocontroller: E3 PC Gaming Show


During E3’s PC Game Show we got a further look into the new Impulse Neurocontroller that Brinks Bionics has been developing. The glove is intended to improve players reaction times by 80 milliseconds, which is 32 percent faster than the average speeds. The glove is designed to read players intentions and send responses to the player’s computer by translating muscle signals to left or right clicking. This controller does not link with players nervous systems, it just reads muscle movement so there are no side effects.

This controller is only compatible with Windows 7 and 10 operating systems, and comes in various sizes. There also is a lot of onboard training due to the learning curve with using this devices. This is provided with purchase.

I do wonder if these gloves will be tournament legal for tournaments. I can see the glove being banned, but also being allowed for players with disabilities. It will be interesting to see in the future.

The controller has already sold out, but is normally buyable for 163.99 USD on Brinks Bionics website https://www.brinkbionics.com/home-vr-6.
