Delta Six Controller Lets You Wield Replica Assault Rifle, Looking For Crowd Funding

Inventor David Kotkin launched a Kickstarter campaign for his new Delta Six game controller that will take first person shooter games to the next level.

With its sophisticated features and realistic aesthetics, the Delta Six has also impressed former executives from Activision.

“They saw the great potential and were very interested in the possibilities. We discussed how it could be compared to IMAX movies and how you have to offer more to not be taken over by the competition.” Kotkin continued, “We were in agreement that Delta could be a Blockbuster with the proper support. They saw Kickstarter as a good test to see if they will give that support.”

The Delta Six mirrors the look of a modern military combat rifle, including real time aiming as well as a kickback sensation. The Delta Six was developed using IR sensors, accelerometers and gyroscopes to provide unparalleled arcade experience.

When you play, you will have real recoil. Taping the clip will engage a reload in your game. We have installed an IR proximity sensor so when you go to aim the game zooms for you. When you are zoomed in your game if you pull the stock into your shoulder slightly your aim will become steadier with the FPS breath hold feature. While playing move the Delta stock towards the screen and a melee or slash action will occur. People who donate $159.00 will receive the Delta early and not have to pay 225.00 dollars that non funders will have to pay.

"If you add in all the sensors the tooling and design work you are getting the Delta at our cost. With this one you are really coming out ahead and helping to get this amazing project off the ground.” said David Kotkin, owner and inventor of The Delta Six.

The Delta Six is compatible with Xbox 360, PS3, and PC systems. The Delta Six can also be upgraded to the Next Generation systems like PS4 with a downloadable patch. Kotkin also said, “The coding for the Delta will be using an Arduino programming language, making personal coding easy.”
