Fanatec Porsche wheel

A German accessory maker, Fanatec, says it has developed a new gaming wheel in collaboration with the country's most famous sports car builder, Porsche. The 911 Turbo Wheel is based on Porsche's most popular vehicle, and includes not just a wheel but a 6+1 gearshift, along with gas, brake and clutch pedals. Force feedback is provided by three different motors, and the wheel's handle is covered in "automotive-grade" leather.

The setup as a whole uses a wireless USB receiver, and is compatible with both PCs and Sony's PlayStation 3 console. Some supported games include rFactor, Race Driver: Grid, and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. The 911 Turbo Wheel should be released online in May, at a price of $350.
