Shaped like a TV remote, the Wii Remote* is been designed to be easily used by beginners and pros alike. Sensors determine the Wii Remote's position is in 3-D space, which means that racing-game steering and a tennis swing, for example, are done through movements of your hand rather than by just your thumbs. What's more, a tiny speaker built into the Wii Remote promises some interactive surround sound experiences. The controller also has a force feedback "Rumble" feature. The Wii Remote communicates via the Bluetooth wireless standard.
Connect Wiimote to computer via Bluetooth

* recommended 100% compatible with iFeelPixel™
** Logitech Wingman Force Feedback mouse and Novint Falcon are recommended for blind users.

Why buy a TouchSense Device?

Haptics is receiving broad, global acceptance. Over 300 million devices using Immersion’s haptic systems have been shipped around the world. That number is growing rapidly.

"The very common response that we get from people is that once they start using a force feedback interface device for some of their work, whether it be in entertainment or scientific analysis, they really don't want to go back"

"You can't underestimate how important the sense of touch is to the basic human experience of engaging. Once you have it, you want that natural intuitive experience"

- Dr. Louis Rosenberg, Immersion Corporation, San Jose

"The addition of tactile feedback to computer mice can significantly enhance user performance."

"Our laboratory studies show that people complete basic cursor targeting tasks faster with tactile feedback."

- Jack Dennerlein, Assistant Professor of Ergonomics and Safety at Harvard University

Feel what you see!

iFeelPixel™ TactileWare is optimized for iFeel™ Mouse, Novint Falcon and SteelSeries Rival 500/700

Note: If you don't own a TouchSense Device, don't worry...you can use the iFeelPixel software with a simple mouse because tactile effects are replaced by visual force feedback (pseudo-haptic) or sound effects.
