Sixth Sense has created a very unique gaming headset which allows you to add functionality when simply moving your head. Watch the video below to learn more about its unique feature and its aluminium construction which is also been developed to provide an ergonomic fit.
Sixth Sense has taken to Kickstarter this month to raise the $20,000 they require to take their Booster One gaming headset into production. This developer Iaroslav Neliubov explains a little more about the inspiration behind these unique gaming headsets.
‘I loved computer games from my childhood, and now I can say it has had a tremendous impact on my life”. Because I studied to become an architect, it closely linked my life with computers and work in special software (3D max, Ps, Autocad, etc.).
I noticed that one simple action, for example zooming in or out on an image when working in photoshop normally takes between 3 and 5 seconds of scrolling the wheel on the mouse and that this action is necessary around 100 times every hour. 5sec x 100 times an hour is 8.3 minutes of scrolling every hour. That means, if you are working for 8 hours, you are spending around an hour a day scrolling the wheel on the mouse in order to zoom. Which is 5 hours a week or 11 days a year just scrolling!
As I researched ways to speed up these processes, I found that it was possible to manipulate simple functions with movements of the head. A simple prototype of the device was made to verify its usability. It worked !!! Now, I just needed to figure out what to do with this new technology. The answer was easy! I would place it in gaming headphones!
