The Booster One headset will help improve your gaming skills through weird head bobbing
Remember those days when your body used to move each time you control the in-game camera?
Imagine you’re playing a First Person Shooter, let’s say Counter Strike: Global Offensive, you’re caught in a pinch, trading shots against the enemy at Dust II’s A site, suddenly you run out of bullets on your SMG, switch to your pistol, that’s what your brain says, but when you press your hotkey, your keyboard suddenly malfunctions and there’s a delay on the command input, what do you do? You bob your head sideways and your weapon switches, you continue raining the fire, you wipe out the enemy team and take the victory, hooray!
Sounds weird? Well that is the concept behind the Kickstarter funded Booster One Gaming Headset, one that promises to improve your gaming skills through the use of head movement to replace hotkey commands on your keyboard or mouse buttons. Created by Sixth Sense Technology, the Booster One’s main feature would be it’s gyroscopic controls with 4 preset modes for different video game genres, Strategy, Shooter, Racing and even Flight.
Being made for gaming, the headset will also come with a built-in noise cancelling microphone and is even endorsed by Dota 2 pro, former player now analyst, Alexander “XBOCT” Dashkevich.
Booster One is expected to complete and start shipping by August 2017, as of the moment, it has reached a funding of USD 11,523 or about 57% of its USD 20,000 goal.
