    Looking to change the way that gamers play, Titanium Falcon announced this week that they have finished their design for a new interesting, albeit, semi-odd approach for a video game controller. Dubbed the Talon, or "smart ring," and being the first ever form of a gaming controller ring. It's certainly an offbeat take on an accessory, while simultaneously opening the door for a vast amount of possibilities in the future of gaming.

    Founded in 2014, Titanium Falcon is a team of highly skilled designers and engineers working on this new project, while also being a company built by business graduates, thus, giving the establishment great capabilities in the marketing and finance fields. Titanium Falcon hopes to get funding/support from fans of this new device by starting an Indiegogo campaign later this month, with a goal of $300,000.

    Utilizing motions, such as Xbox's Kinect, or Playstation's Motion Controller, and also the ability to connect to any smart device (phone, tablet, smart TV, smartwatch, PC/Mac, or VR headset), the Talon uses Bluetooth Low Energy, along with a 9-axis motion control sensor to convert users' hand gestures into the appropriate input for whatever game or application is being played at the time. Additionally, the Talon features two action buttons, and should also be compatible with games across multiple genres including shooting, racing, and sports.

    Titanium Falcon is hoping to sell the Talon for under $100, and if all goes well with its Indiegogo campaign, this new device could be available relatively soon, although no estimated release date has been announced.

    100$ for a plastic ring? And I thought that the apple watch was stupid and overpriced.

      Ahh that's one of the few I've seen. Looks dumb as S**t.

    Calm down guys, this is something new it could turn out well. When consoles came out, people thought that was going to turn out funny but look now, Xbox and Playstation are the biggest gaming companies in the world.

      Their hopes of selling the device for under $100 alone is enough to warrant concern regarding the effectiveness of this device. It's essentially been done before with minimal success.

      Xbox and Playstation aren't companies, Microsoft and Sony are companies, and neither one of them started out with consoles.

    I am predicting that this will not do well. I mean, how many people do they expect to buy a "ring controller"?

    Reminds me of a lot of devices currently available for different devices, including smart phones and electronics around the home, that have been coming out as of late. Not to pass judgement based on it's cousin predecessors but I really don't see this device working out.

      Motion Controller in the shape of a ring.

    This is hilarious. I don't feel like anybody would buy this, but I might be wrong and people like weird things?

    I don't like motion gaming. I think it takes out the entertainment value out of gaming.If you think I actually want to move? you have a better chance seeing a stray cat in your sink. I hate moving. It hurts my thumbs =3 #Kappa4Lief
