Ep. 51: U-Force – For Experienced Players Only

We’re joined, once again, by Norman Caruso to discuss the history of a unique 1990 Nintendo Entertainment System controller, the U-Force. All the rage when it was announced, this hands-free controller uses infrared emitters/detectors to locate your hands in 3-dimensional space for game control input. In his recent video Don’t Touch: The Story of the U-Force | Gaming Historian we learn how this device came about and why, sadly, it didn’t perform very well, both physically and in the retail market.
