Kickstarter Update — Wireless Communication Stretch Goal & Reactive Grip Project Ideas for Makers


November 19, 2013 | Posted in Reactive Grip™ Hardware | By

There’s lots of great news with today’s kickstarter update:

We’ve announced a stretch goal for wireless communication as well as shown new ways to use the Reactive Grip controller. An overview of the update is below, but go to the update #5 on Kickstarter for more info.

  • Wireless communications stretch goal for the Reactive Grip



  • Limited Special reward tiers and “Add a Grip” add-ons

We’re making it easy to add a controller dev kit to your current dev kit pledge.  We’ve also added new lower priced dev kit tiers.


  • How to transform Reactive Grip to take the place of other game peripherals or use it in your projects

See the movie below and collage of images for lots of great ideas of how you can replace a pile of gaming peripherals with our controllers and how you can do with Reactive Grip in your projects.
