The Peregrine. A USB peripheral that fits over your left hand and enables more than 30 individual commands to be mapped to your fingers.
Tonight we will give a brief review of the product, while interviewing Brent Baier – Inventor of the Peregrine, and CTO of Ironwill Innovations.
- Sturdy lightweight fabric
- Ventilation areas
- Tight, non-obtrusive stitching (except inside the fingertips)
- High quality materials (stainless steel wiring, gold-plated contacts)
- GloveBox is very intuitive
- Allows you to map almost anything to any finger, even key combos
- Supports 5 keymaps per profile STORED IN THE POD
- Customizable LED and backplates
- Magnetic attachment
- “Always on” so no Connect/Disconnect noises or system popups
- (Q: How much storage, can you fit GloveBox in there in future versions?)
- Almost no pressure is required, it senses the moment the two points contact
- Touch points can be calibrated to move along the trace wires, and be larger/smaller by choice
- Due to thick stitching at the seams along the fingertips, I found it almost impossible to use in conjunction with a keyboard.
- When I was able to remove the keyboard from the equation, it worked like a DREAM.
- Recommended for:
- Click-based RPGs like Diablo, Titan’s Quest and Torchlight
- Any MMOG that allows for mouse-based movement (STO, WoW, etc.)
