Novint Technologies is developing 3-D touch-software drivers for World of Warcraft (WoW), which has more than 10 million users. Novint plans to release the drivers for the Falcon game controller, which allows users to feel realistic game actions, objects, environments and force feedback later this year. The drivers, built using the game's LUA Scripting system, will let players feel their character's actions, spells, enemy attacks and other interactions dramatically. Novint is also integrating a unique interface in the game that gives players easy access to a customizable selection of spells and other game inventory items, allowing players to intuitively map up to 36 actions to Falcon movements with an in game UI.

The Falcon is essentially a small robot that replaces a mouse or joystick, allowing players to feel high-fidelity three-dimensional touch in enabled games. The WoWdrivers will be distributed at www.novint.com and from NVeNT, Novint's interface to Falcon games, information, software updates, unique content and community. A full copy of the game must be owned to use the drivers.

Novint is currently taking advance reservations for a special Falcon Orange Box bundle, due later this year. The bundle will include the new Black Falcon, Pistol Grip and a touch-enabled version of The Orange Box (a $248.98 value for $189.99). Reservations may be placed on the company's Website.
