Kontrol Freek – reprieve for gamers’ thumbs

If you play a lot of video games, you’re undoubtedly familiar with what the controllers do to your thumbs. Marathon sessions in games that require a lot of lateral movement (e.g. racing games and tennis games) will completely destroy your thumbs. Your thumbs will literally hurt after a few hours, and they will continue hurting well into the next day. It’s very uncomfortable.

A friend of mine has a great little product that almost completely eliminates the soreness. It’s a little U-shaped add-on that attaches itself on top of the thumbstick. It’ll allow you to control the thumbsticks with less pressure and force. It works with the “S” controller for the XBox and the XBox 360 controllers.

I beta tested the product for my friend and found it doing exactly what it was designed to do.

His company is called Kontrol Freek and the product is called U-150. Go take a look and pre-order one, if you like what you see.
