During its livestream event, Logitech presented a new steering wheel, a piece of equipment aimed at racing game enthusiasts with amazing specifications. A small LED display, force feedback, and low-latency response are all fantastic qualities to have in an enthusiast kit, but it is the steering wheel's modular architecture that makes it not only more configurable, but also more accessible for individuals with impairments.
The brake on the separately marketed G Pro foot pedals is fitted with a load cell and pressure detection that precisely registers the applied force. The G Pro offers a dual-clutch mechanism that may be utilised in place of the accelerator and brake pedals for those players who are unable to use the required hardware. The pedal system is also more modular so that it may be tailored to the demands of the player.
Although this arrangement will not come cheap, the top paddle shifters are magnetic and have hall-effect sensors in their design. However, the price for this configuration is going to be rather high. The G Pro wheel by itself will set you back $1,000, and the pedals are available for an additional cost of $350 each. In comparison to competing manufacturers in the same market, such as Thrustmaster and Fanatec, the price of the Logitech G Pro steering wheel is significantly more as a result of the aforementioned factor.
This week, Logitech lifted the curtain on their soon-to-be-released gaming portable gadget, which will retail for $350, and revealed a number of new pieces of technology, one of which was an extremely detailed steering wheel. The Logitech G Cloud features a screen with a resolution of 1080p, an impressively long battery life, and compatibility with Microsoft's Xbox Cloud Gaming service.
