CES 2009: Thrustmaster T.16000M joystick
I’ve just had a quick look in the archives, and it’s been a long time since we covered an actual joystick product, as opposed to some sort of joystick-related piece of art or hackery. For the few of you who still use a joystick, then (flight sim enthusiasts?), here’s the Thrustmaster T.16000M.

Some “Hall Effect” magnets sit on the stick, giving the sensors far more precision than most other joysticks. On each axis, there’s over 16,000 different values. That’s a little ridiculous, but might be worth buying if the person with the steadiest hands in the world is your Secret Santa next year, and is a big flight-sim enthusiast.
The T.16000M is ambidextrous, comes with 16 action buttons, and offers a wide hand rest and weighted base as additional features. It’ll be available in February and cost £50. That seems fairly cheap. Maybe I should give it a shot.
