Now, with its eyes set on the gaming market and a device that could be sold for roughly 0, Anderson and his team were ready to make a play for the consumer market.
It was time to show the public what this thing could do."For video games, it's an amazing technology," Anderson says.
"It's such an amazing experience, especially for the cost."Machulis got his hands on the device before its consumer debut and created a simple proof-of-concept program he now calls "crude and stupid." He's not wrong.
The program takes advantage of the device's force controls to thrust back and forth in a sort of wild stabbing motion, like a drunk teenager aimlessly thrusting his way through his first time.
So he merged with Force Tek, which was looking to use the Falcon's 3D touch technology to create a haptic exoskeleton.
The time had seemingly come and gone for the Novint Falcon and Anderson exited the company soon after.
This disembodied robot boob is the Novint Falcon, a one-time game-changing game controller turned teledildonics legend.
Kyle Machulis, hardware engineer and sex-tech enthusiast, is here to reenact a demo he posted to You Tube in August 2007.
It had been a bumpy road to market, but by the summer of 2008 Novint had picked up a number of major licensing deals, secured distribution through big-box stores like Best Buy and managed to impress the gaming and tech press through demos at CES and GDC.It just needed to secure another round of funding first.In its short lifespan, the Novint Falcon was used in medical, industrial and architectural training and visualization.So how does a device go from PC-gaming sweetheart to would-be sex-toy wunderkind?Nearly two years after its announcement, the Novint Falcon seemed poised to change the way we game.
"We were hitting all of our milestones, all of our investors were happy, we were about to get much broader distribution. They said, 'If you can get game support, then we want to carry you with our devices.' Play Station, in particular, when we told them about the EA deal, we were ready to move forward and get support for the PS3.
