We've been tracking this thing for a good while, but while the vaporware status of the Novint Falcon 3D haptic mouse was touch and go for a bit there, it looks like they're going to pull through with this one, with a release slotted for June 18 at a pre-order price of $189. Now what exactly that cash will be getting you, it's a bit hard to explain, but the basic gist is that the Falcon features a floating doohicky attached to a pod doohicky, and the floating part moves about in 3D space for controlling video games, 3D modeling programs and the like. The real kicker is the force feedback that's been worked into this thing, adding a pretty nifty layer of interactivity -- you know, gun recoil, rubber band snapping, the feel of textures against the skin, stuff like that. The MSRP on this unit is $239, but as of the 8th you can pre-order the Falcon for $189. You'll have until June to figure out what you'll actually do with the dang thing, though Novint will be bundling 24 touch-enabled microgames to get you started.
