Thrustmaster unveils a joystick with H.E.A.R.T

Publish date:

Trustmaster has announced its new T.16000M joystick will include the peripheral manufacturer's Halleffect Accurate Technology, or H.E.A.R.T., recently revealed at this year's CES.

H.E.A.R.T uses 3D Hall Effect magnetic sensors built into the stick, which are 256 times more precise than those used in other products. It also removes all friction from the device, preventing the risk of mechanical wear during heated gaming sessions and allowing for more consistent precision.

The technology's accuracy is also enhanced by the absence of ‘dead zones' around the stick, a feature highlighted by the green backlighting and allowing for linear and smooth actions. H.E.A.R.T is currently patent pending. The T.16000M joystick will be released in February for 49.99.
