Getting Closer

Moving in a little closer. The controller isn't tiny. The PS2 DualShock controller is definitely smaller, but the AirFlo EX does fill one's hands nicely. It is nicely curved and contoured, and far more pleasing to hold than either the Xbox or GameCube controller. The grips themselves are rubberized, which is very effective at reducing slippage.

The AirFlo EX has a total of a total of 11 buttons, plus the analog sticks (also pressable, making 13 effective "buttons"), and the D-pad. All are independent and can be mapped separately. In the middle is your switch for what makes the EX so special, its built in fan.

The fan works by sucking air up into the controller and blowing it out the vented sides, in turn reducing your nasty sweaty palms to something you wouldn't mind caressing your girlfriend's face with....heh...hehehe. I almost said that with a straight face. You get the idea, you won't have to keep your sweat rag handy here. It has 3 positions, off, low, and high. Better yet, it is powered off the USB port, so no plugging in or batteries needed to take advantage of the fan feature.
