THE MOST POWERFUL AVENGER EVER

The newest Avenger Controller, Def-Con 4, has 30% more power than the original version. Kickstarter backers will have exclusive access to features that will not be available to the public for months. Def-Con 4 will be made available only to Kickstarter beta testers. When the Def-Con-4 officially launches in 2013, it will greatly enhance the performance in games like Call of Duty/Special Ops 2.  The arms of the controller are now molded to be esthetically pleasing. An a new lever can work a button by using a palm instead of a finger. The Def-Con 4 combines aesthetics and functions in an entirely new way and, additionally, is more rugged than other Avengers.

DF4 prototypes shown on Kickstarter are likely to change in appearance.

Preview: Bionic Gel, Joystick Toppers from Avenger Controller

Nov 29, 2012

Our friend, David Kotkin, the inventor of the Avenger Controller attachment, has sent us a few Pre-release products to try out while we play our new favorite game, Black Ops 2, for hours on end. The first product we were able to get our very active gaming thumbs on are rubberized gel joystick toppers called “Bionic Gel”.

These toppers are great! They can be added to both the joysticks and the directional D-pad and affix to the controller with a peal away sticky backing. They add a little bit of height to the joysticks; about as much height as the Close Quarters Kontrol Freeks add but the height extension is not their main draw. What really got us excited was the grip these things have. Not even the sweatiest thumbs will slip when using the Bionic Gels. The cushioned rubber feel they have is incredibly comfortable and the deep thumb divot wraps around perfectly keeping your thumb in place even during the most intense firefights. This thumb divot provides for a heightened ridge around your thumb that other products just don’t offer. This combined with the bit of height on the joystick gives the user precise controller over aiming and movement. I felt as though slight movements especially when aiming was a lot easier due to the way my thumb was cradled within the topper instead of just sitting on top of the joystick without any barriers to keep my thumb in position.

The one area these toppers did falter in during our testing was in the way they stick to the actual joystick. The sticky backing is strong but not strong enough. During hours of game play I found that the right topper lost it’s grip to the joystick due to constant forward pressure when sprinting in game and kept slipping forward. The left joystick topper stayed put and never moved off its original position as I treat my aiming with a little more finesse and less pressure. If these release as is and this happens it is advised that you just add a little glue to them to keep them in place. They are that good that you won’t want to remove them once they are on.

The Bionic Gels would be a worthy addition to any gamer’s controller setup. The grip and control they provide is unrivaled. I give Bionic Gel an 8.5/10 only losing points for the way they attach to the joysticks; otherwise these are near perfect and highly recommended. We can’t wait until these release and all gamers can enjoy the benefits of how a joystick should feel under thumb. Stay tuned for previews of other products that just may be your next favorite controller addition.

Manufacturing and Fulfillment

Because of my history in inventing, designing, and marketing controller adapters, I have established relationships with Chinese manufacturers. Since China is the world leader in producing high tech products for the likes of Apple and other major players in the electronics industry, there connections are invaluable.

I will work with engineers to guide the manufacturing process and with factory foremen to ensure that all of our specifications and cost requirements are fully met. I have spent more than ten years learning all I need to know to see a project of this scope implemented successfully. I know what is needed in every stage of production and can work efficiently and effectively with subcontractors to bring impressive results.

I have learned to anticipate and plan for shipping costs, including overseas transport and distribution and all of the other elements of a realistic budget.

My work on the electrolarynx work hands free device

I am troat cancer survivor. In my recovery I learned to use a device called an electro larynx that enables me talk. It looks like a small flashlight. I have to hold the device against my neck which leaves me only one hand for everything else.I had an idea! What if you didn’t have to hold it? Both my hands would be free. I got a patent and the best biomedical engineer I could find. After spending considerable expense and time nothing I created worked. I heard David was a good problem solver so I presented him with my dilemma. He worked tirelessly on it for a few weeks. When I went to a laryngectomy conference I wore the prototype David had made. Griffin Industries, the producer of my electro larynx, approached me and inquired about manufacturing the device that I conceived and David created. I now travel around the country teaching new laryngectmies to speak using the hands free device. You can see me demonstrate the hands free apparatus at http://www.griffinlab.com/Products/Electrolarynx-Video-and-Audio-Examples.html
I see that David has conceived a new invention,His creative genius and visionary ideas make him an industry leader.I know if he made it ,it is
going towork and work in a way no one else on this earth would have thought of.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Risks and Challenges

Every project has its own set of risks and challenges.Sometimes they are similar and sometimes they are quite different. We have both kinds.The specific challenges I face as an inventor and designer in bringing the Def-con and the bionics to market and rewarding our investors are the following:

Although I have successfully completed seven projects—taking them from idea to design, manufacturing, and distribution, this is the biggest project I’ve ever tackled. Bringing together the right team and successfully marketing so many new products is not a task without risk and poses a new set of challenges, mostly due to its greater scope. I have faced similar challenges before and my experience in these matters lowers the risk.

Dealing with suppliers and manufacturing sources also presents a risk. Logistics can break down if they aren’t carefully managed. Timing issues, including meeting deadlines and delays in customs when parts or products need to be imported from overseas are constant challenges but my experience has taught me how to successfully manage these logistical problems.

Going over budget is always a risk. I have learned to meet this challenge by having failed at it at times but have learned to anticipate and control costs as a result. Identifying and mitigating risk and responding to and overcoming challenges are matters that I have a great deal of experience in. I have learned how much experience counts and it is one of the reasons investors will respond favorably to the opportunity this project provides.
