Valve reveals haptic game controller

[quote=BBC Technology News]Games developer and publisher Valve has shown off its Steam Controller, the final part of its strategy to bring its PC-based platform to the living room.
The controller offers two trackpads which provide "haptic" feedback capable of delivering various physical sensations to the player.
Valve said it offers a better way to play games that have traditionally been controlled with a keyboard and mouse.
Gamers have been invited test the device before it goes on sale in 2014

This really does intrigue me. It's rather different in a good way (unlike the PS move controller).
Got myself entered in the draw for the steam beta....fingers crossed.
