MacAlly Shows Airstick
4:27 PM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

MacAlly have been showing off some of their peripherals at the Paris Expo, and have also been demonstrating their new Airstick. The best description of the Airstick is a joystick without a base, meaning you are totally free (apart from the USB cord) to move around and use it to fly your favorite flight simulator. The Airstick is a joystick with an advanced motion-tracking tilt sensor, allowing you to play any InputSprocket and non-InputSprocket games. Not only is it a mid-air joystick, is it also a game controller, allowing you to use it for PlayStation games. We had a chance to play with it and think it is amazing. It provides you with great support and fluid control of games such as Descent 3, Star Was Racer and Falcon 4. Here are the Airstick's features:

Motion sensing midair joystick

  • 100% compatible with MacOS
  • Control pad and Joystick-two in one design
  • 11 control buttons plus one thumbstick
  • Ergonomic Design
  • Plug and Play operation
  • Excellent feel and shape
  • Lifetime warranty
While MacAlly has not determined an exact release date, they told us that it should be out next month.
