Nyko Technologies has shipped its Air Flo controller for the personal computer to retail outlets and consumer electronic stores. First introduced for Sony PlayStationâ2, Nintendo GameCube and Microsoft Xbox, Nyko's patented Air Flo technology will now also provide PC gamers with a consistent flow of fresh air through the handgrips, ensuring a more comfortable game play experience. The PC Air Flo controller will retail for $24.99.

"Even we were surprised at the amazing popularity of the Air Flo controllers," said Susan Corben, director, marketing, Nyko Technologies. "While some gamers love the controller for its uniqueness, many gamers truly appreciate the Air Flo technology for its hand-drying benefits, which make game playing much more comfortable. This year, we wanted PC gamers to be able to have the Air Flo experience, too."

The sleek PC Air Flo's handgrips have been designed to provide superior comfort, increased airflow and precision in PC gaming. Created in silver and black materials for a unique, futuristic look, the PC Air Flo is a console-type controller that has two speeds for customized ventilation. The PC Air Flo is powered by the gaming system itself, eliminating the need for batteries. Additionally, it is plug-and-play with no need to install drivers.

Nyko's PC Air Flo controller also features a 10-foot cable and other standard features, including dual analog control sticks, 8-way D-pad, built-in variable vibration function and pressure sensitive analog buttons.
