About


 Resense RsQuake is a hardware add-on placed on your desk to enhance the PC gaming experience with powerful feedback that makes the whole surface of your desk vibrate. It also comes with two different illumination effects: lightning and RGB light.

We are developing a smart driver that triggers and handles all the effects automatically, all powered by our real-time AI. This makes RsQuake compatible with any PC game right from the start. 

RsQuake is the result of a series of iterations on engineering and product design. After intensive research and development, we have finally reached our goal: truly immersive vibration for PC gaming.

We have working prototypes, and now we need your help to produce RsQuake at a large scale, so everyone can have one. This will allow us to refine the product and give a high-quality gadget to early adopters. Our next step is the crowdfunding campaign.

 Kickstarter has proven to be an amazing platform for accelerating disruptive ideas, and we know the PC gaming experience will change forever after RsQuake.

 One Step Closer into the Game 

It all comes together when vibration and directional lighting give you a sense of direction where the action is taking place.

Vibration

If you have played any console in the past ten years, you already know how it feels to play with vibration feedback. Our technology provides an enhanced experience, using vibration by resonance. At the right moments (activated by our AI), RsQuake will transmit vibrations to the whole desk surface, including your keyboard, mouse, and hands.

RsQuake prototype tested on a liquid surface to demonstrate vibration waves.

RGB Light & Lightning

RGB light is a feature that immerses you in the game scenario by expanding your monitor using RGB lights. Your peripheral vision will make you feel like you are inside the game, eliminating the limitations created by the borders of the monitor. It serves a practical purpose as well, as this kind of lighting helps you see brighter colors, clearer contrasts, and even reduces eye strain. In other words, your eyes will get less tired while playing! Not to mention your desk will look reeeeally cool :)

Lightning feels completely different. It is a strong directional flash illumination that shoots beams of light to your left or right. This feature perfectly emulates explosions, gunshots, or lightning, and it makes your gaming experience even more immersive. 

AI-powered Driver

By doing real-time analysis of video and audio our driver is able to detect an explosion or attack, triggering vibration and illumination effects without any performance loss.

With a real-time AI that runs in the background understanding everything that is going on when you are playing, RsQuake works perfectly with the vast majority of games without the need of a single line of code from any game developer. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend games with a lot of action and not, say, chess.

We tested the final prototype of RsQuake with more than 3,000 players at an event with 12,000 people. The results validated the AI and the hardware prototype. That is why we are so sure about delivering what we promise: gamers just love it.

RsQuake is a USB device equipped with a resonance vibration motor, RGB LEDs and flash LEDs. It connects directly to the PC or laptop; after installing the driver, the user can immediately launch any game, and effects will be triggered automatically. No additional setup is required.

System Requirements:

  • PC or laptop with a free USB port
  • OS: Windows® 7/8/10
  • Power Supply: AC 100~240V

SDK:

Besides the smart driver, we will also provide to all game developers a free SDK to manually control the RsQuake's hardware; these will be games with native Resense support. With customized code, a game developer is able to control the game experience  precisely, instead of relying on the generic experience provided by the AI driver.

Risks and challenges

Our software is being developed for over a year, and our hardware prototype has been tested at a gaming event with more than 3,000 players. Now our main challenge is to deliver the product on time.

Communication:
We want to be transparent every step of the way, and we promise to keep our backers updated about our progress.
