Inventor David Kotkin announced today that his Delta Six project is getting a make-over. After the initial announcement of the Delta Six gaming controller hit the media, an unfortunate controversy erupted over its appearance. "The toy gun looked too realistic and was consequently considered threatening by some critics," said Kotkin. While many reviewers applauded the enhanced realism of the new game gun, anecdotal evidence suggested that some video game critics were opposed to it. Citing the controversy, a small number of potential investors began backing away from providing funding. Deciding to find new backers, Kotkin submitting Delta Six to Kickstarter, a leading source of the new enterprise of "crowd funding." It seems likely that success on Kickstarter will fully revive the project.



"Gamers have been disappointed with other game guns and this has made them skeptical concerning the technological advancements the gun represents," said Kotkin. "It reminded them of the disappointments they had experienced with Wii or Sony's Move when it comes to shooters. What gamers need to understand, we are not trying to shoot and then play golf or bowling,"Kotkin continued. "I am focused like laser on one thing, making this so good that an owner of a Delta will want to reach for it when playing a First Person Shooter. Delta will do whatever a standard controller can do and play all Xbox games or PS3 games. With an adapter a Delta can be used with a PC.

Kickstarter's crowd funding should be perfect platform for this." Kotkin's record as an inventor who has brought working models to market in recent years will also help Kickstarter ensure that contributors are not supporting a product that lacks true market potential.

Here are the modifications that have been made and additional pieces of information that respond to the criticisms of the prototype:
  • Delta Six will now be offered an all-white shell with an orange tip to make it less realistic
  • Delta shoots no projectiles, stays indoors and is safer than a water pistol or Nerf gun
  • Patented technology is employed by the Delta Six that was not available in older systems.
  • The Delta gun can transform from larger for more game immersion. Then can be made small for more gaming advantage and comfort
  • The recoil has an on/off switch that may be used if its default action is too realistic for some players
  • Realistic zoom and reloading features are an optional features that can be replaced by using speed buttons on the outside of the Delta
  • The gaming advantages include:
    o Button placement is arranged so that every finger is either touching a button or is near one
    o When Delta is broken down it is as light at as a 360 controller, so it can be comfortable to use with one-handed operation even while lying in bed
    o The aiming joy stick becomes the Delta, in a mode similar to the motion sensor of the IPad when the iPad is rocked to initiate action
    o The accelerometer interprets the joy stick so targeting is as fast, as it would be with a joystick and about the same effort.
"This project should not miss its market simply because it was misunderstood," said Kotkin.He hopes that gamers will support the Delta Six and judge this technologically advanced gaming gun on its merits. Kotkin also announced that contributors who support Delta Six on Kickstarter will receive rewards. One is getting an exclusive Delta blow back Desert Eagle game gun.

Too realistic... what a crock. Thats what people want. Take a look at Airsoft guns, people buy the most realistic ones they can get their hands on, those things could be mistaken as real in a heart beat, and thats why people want them. Companies are just too scared to make that leap. And Kickstarter has shown that, the people want something like that, and now it has backers. Hopefully it will open some eyes in the industry if this thing makes it successfully.

On a side note, a link to the actual Kickstarter for this would be cool.

Nope. Let's bolster down the playground with rubber. Don't teach your kids to ride a bicycle they could hurt themselves, give them a T-Bar Scooter instead. Give them a band-aid for every single tiny owwie and comfort them when they cry for attention. Don't let them play video games, they are violent and will make them rapists. Don't let them watch Thomas The Tank Engine, trains don't have faces, your kids could run onto a train track and kill themselves; have them watch the hallucinations of a mad TV producer instead.

Aaaaaand, enjoy your next of kin.

I am absolutely sure this is going to fail to some degree.

Looks like it has already begun failing.

The children that shouldn't be playing mature games with guns anyway.
But by no means is it the parents job to make sure there kids are not playing with things they dislike that's what the government is for :rolleyes:.

While I'm at it I might as well paint my .22lr white and put an orange ring on barrel it I'm sure no one will think twice about me walking around in public with it.

What's sad is that you actually could get away with that.

You can carry anything you want here. Maryland and Illinois are two of the eight states that are exceptions to the open carry rule.
