We are excited to offer the OGC1 starting in late 2017. Please contact us directly if you are considering buying a game controller for use in an MRI or MEG setting. We are testing the first prototype and making refinements: your input at this stage could be very helpful!
Current Designs' optical game controller OCG1 is the perfect choice for MR-compatible computer response gathering in multi-user MRI settings where task requirements vary widely. It provides 2 analog joysticks, 2 analog finger actuators, and 16 on/off actuators in useful and ergonomic configurations, so researchers can choose combinations that fit their studies well without having to switch hardware. It is non-magnetic, non-electronic, and entirely made out of plastic, so will not add noise to the images or raise safety concerns in the MR/MEG room or similarly demanding environments.
Based on an XBox 360 controller housing, but with the internal circuitry is replaced with MR-compatible materials and optical fiber sensing.
