Logitech Unveils ChillStream Controller For PC
Logitech unveiled a new game controller with a built-in fan-based cooling system, designed to keep the hands of gamers cool and dry — even during intense competition.
Logitech's ChillStream Technology includes a built-in 40mm fan that circulates up to 3.41 cubic feet of air every minute, while generating little noise. Because of the fan's compact size, Logitech can deliver the ChillStream feature in a standard-size controller. Three narrow vents on each side of the controller push air directly onto the four fingers, the base of the thumb and the palm of the hand — the three areas of the hand that need cooling most. The air stream has three settings — continuous, interval, or off. In the interval mode, the air stays on for 15 seconds, then turns off for 30 seconds. The air vents are recessed from the surface of the controller and rubber linings surrounding the vents are flush with the surface — making the vents barely noticeable to the touch during gaming.
The plug-and-play, full-speed USB Logitech ChillStream controller for PC works on Windows XP computers (with the latest service pack), and will work with Windows Vista when it becomes available. The controller features Logitech's patented floating D-pad, which uses four points of contact instead of a single pivot point — a design that resists side-to-side tipping inherent in other controllers, making the controller more precise. The controller's analog stick has been machine-tested to perform at least one million circular revolutions, ensuring that it can handle the rigors of gaming over a long period of time. The Logitech ChillStream controller for PC will be available in the U.S. and in Europe, beginning in September. It has a suggested retail price of $39.99 in the U.S.
