Final Delta Six design trades colorful buttons for military realism

The last time David Kotkin offered a public look at his Delta Six gun controller, it looked much as you'd expect: beige plastic, brightly colored buttons, and a garish, silver directional pad jutting from the side. Having raised nearly twice his $100,000 goal on Kickstarter, Kotkin made a few changes. The more realistic, new Delta Six includes bright red caps at the end of its barrel to help others determine whether you're playing a video game or planning a paramilitary raid, but otherwise it's the sort of detailed, carbon black hardware that you'd expect to see in the hands of a modern soldier.

Kotkin claims the Delta Six will be available for purchase by the end of the year, but in the meantime, he has created a pre-order page for those players willing to spend $265 for such a meticulously detailed faux gun.
