Asus confirms Eee Stick controllers

Motion controlled gaming for your PC

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Asus has finally officially launched its Wii-style controllers, which hit headlines earlier this year. Called the Eee Stick, the wireless controller allows users to play games in the same way as on the Wii console.

Asus' Eee Stick: a Wii look-alike?

The Eee Stick is made up of a seven button “Activation stick” and a “Navigation stick,” which has a thumb-operated joystick mounted on top. Both communicate with the PC through a 2.4GHz RF USB dongle, which has a 10m broadcast range.

Vibration feedback’s enabled on both sticks and they have three distinct modes of operation: 3D motion, pointing and titling. In 3D motion the controllers respond to and reproduce movement along all axes, in addition to wrist rotations, which should be good for beat ‘em up games. Pointing is designed for shooting games and tilting mode’s for racing or flying titles.

The controllers only come in white, despite earlier pictures showing them in orange, and are each powered by two AA batteries.

Asus will ship the Eee Stick with unspecified models of the Eee PC and the Eee Box, along with a selection of specially designed games. A release date hasn’t been given.
