And Drew just basically teleports over after hearing Novint Falcon.

Posted by Hasuto

I have one of these! They have a couple of sales every year so you can get them a bit cheaper.

Half Life 2 has built in support for it (so you can just start the game from Steam and it works). There are also some special versions of the Penumbra games (by the guys who then went on to make Amnesia) which have support for it. Most of the demo games I got with it were pretty shitty though.

I can't wait to see a video with that awesome controller. Thanks Evan!

To explain a little further. At my uni we had a couple of Masters students who were developing a piece of software to help train surgeons. There was a scalpel attached to it, and you could move it around, rotate, etc. Then you could "cut" into a 3D mesh and feel the resistance of the different body parts. So cutting into the bone would stop it, etc. They then paired this with some 3D glasses and made it 3D for extra weirdness. Throw all the tech into it!

I used to just switch the scalpel out with the gun and piss about.

Haha! I had no idea what this was called. We had one at my old uni. Dumb as fuuuuck.

Why wouldn't you cut out the middle falcon and just have sex with the lady bits directly?

Posted by ch3burashka

Just last week I remembered this thing existed, and posted in a forum somewhere, saying they should get one along with a Oculus Rift for some insanity/hilarity. Didn't think my wish would come to fruition so soon.

Thanks, Evan. That's mighty kind of you, mate.

That thing looks crazy!

What's that keyboard Jeff has?

Posted by ezdude

Wow, I totally forgot those things existed. I can't wait to see what they do with it.

How do you make backgrounds for wiki pages?

I think you need 1000 wikipoints for the specific page you want to add the background to.

I never knew these actually were sold to the public. I thought it looked like a pretty cool device, clever at least.

Moldy lady parts. Dot com.

can you rift my falcon? thanks

Posted by crithon

hehe, I think I was at the same tech demo as Drew. I was able to touch honey, then we tested it on Half Life 2 gravity gun feedback

Posted by RedHatDrew

The Fry's near my house used to have one of these. Not sure if any actually sold...

Posted by R3DT1D3

The Novint Falcon with singleplayer shooters is AMAZING. They're constantly adding support (free) to current games so the number of games that you can use it with are pretty decent now.

Posted by Goblin

Oh man, I remember seeing HL2 gravity gun demos using that thing.

- You can really feel the weight of this crate-stacking action!

Posted by NekuSakuraba

That thing looks insane, haha, can't wait to see what crazy stuff they use it for.

Posted by RamboJordan

Vinny and Drew are dressed similarly

Posted by Slow_pC

@jeff ... I need that knife... model/amazon ... anything. :)

Posted by cooljammer00

If Jeff's first reaction to getting a gun shaped thing is to point it at Drew and pull the trigger a lot...

Mailbag action and I was finally able to login. Everything is right in the world.

Posted by courage_wolf

Good god, the Falcon is massive. I never realized it was that big.

Edited by Crunchman

Can someone get this to work with Reciever, that "realistic" gun game Patrick and Drew Quick Look'd?

Posted by Mars_Cleric

I love how mechanical it is

Posted by GnolTac

Goddamnit Drew I fucking love you for that response.

I paid like $5 to play dactyl nightmare for approximately 2 minutes in the early 90s. It was the greatest moment of my life.

Posted by JYoung

I love how it's so overstated when Brad EMBARKS on the path to beard-dom, but Vinny can be clean shaven one week and looking like a wild man the next.

Posted by The_Nubster

The past future is the present now, guys.

That just. . . this is just how time works, right? That's just time.

Classic Vinny... Priceless

When will we get another Vinny & Jeff Endurance Run?

Posted by Matoyak

Oh jeeze, I have a friend who was working on integration of that into various games and software products for his college internship. I think he said they managed to get it working in a few games, and google maps. I have NO IDEA why anyone would want that last one, but hey, if anyone cares, maybe someone can search it out. Search terms would likely be related to University of Texas Arlington, the compsci program there, and internships in the area relating to that.

OH MY GOD PLAY HALF-LIFE 2 WITH THAT FUCKER

Posted by Chop

That is one scruffy beard Vinny is sporting...

Posted by SpecDotSign

CELEBRITY. MOLDED. LADYBITS.

Posted by strangeling

Just look at Drew's face light up! :D

I already miss Jeff's beard thing.

So, I used to work for Novint, and my job was primarily to make add ons for new games (which, btw, are free) and create the forces for all the Valve titles. I recently left the company because of a disagreement in philosophy on how to approach the future of the device.

Since the add ons use memory reading in order to function, they need to be patched every time a game is updated. Since I left the company, no one else is doing support for this (nor do I know if they even plan to continue support). However, if you guys need help getting ANY profiles working again with the appropriate haptic feedback, for a TNT or whatever, just shoot me a PM and I'll make a patch for you and help you get them up and running. Hell, if you want me to develop new add ons for any game at all (even old ones) just let me know, and I'd be happy to do it. I still love the concept and the device, just not the people running the company.

That's amazing. cc @ryan @vinny @jeff @drewbert

So does the Falcon play like how FPS games on the Wii play where the cursor is independent to that of the screen?
