A week after releasing its first high-end, 4K video game in over five years, Reynolds advanced video game producer Mike Reynold unveiled the company’s first line of premium video game hardware, the Advanced Materials, at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show.
It’s the latest piece of high-tech equipment for video game developers and publishers to have come from Reynolds.
“I was really excited about that announcement because I think video games have always been about a whole spectrum of ideas,” said Reynold, CEO of Reynold Advanced Materials.
“And I think this is the first time we’ve ever put together a product line of advanced materials that’s going to allow you to make something that’s even higher-end than what you could make on your own.”
The Advanced Materials line of gaming accessories, which also includes a new gaming controller and a new keyboard, will debut in the fall, along with an interactive digital display that will give you access to game-related content.
The advanced materials are also designed to provide a more tactile experience than standard materials, which could be the next logical step for video games, said Reynolds marketing manager for Reynolds Advanced Materials Brad Ecker.
“The advanced materials really enhance the experience and make it feel like you’re actually playing the game.”
Reynolds Advanced Materials’ advanced materials line is based on an innovative blend of materials.
The company is using materials like polycarbonate, which are used in traditional gaming hardware and computer monitors, and ceramics, which form the backbone of high tech electronics.
Ecker said the Advanced materials line will also include a new wireless gaming controller that uses wireless technology to transmit and receive data to players through the world of video games.
The Advanced materials’ first product is a gaming controller, which was announced earlier this month at the Consumer Electronics Conference in Las Vegas.
The controller has a joystick, triggers, buttons and even a backlight.
A second version of the controller will be released in 2019.
Reynold’s Advanced Materials is a subsidiary of Reynolds American Inc., which makes gaming peripherals and computer displays.
Reynolds Advanced materials uses advanced technology, including advanced manufacturing processes and precision machining to create a premium gaming product that is unique to its own line of products.
The Advanced Materials range will feature products ranging from gaming controllers and accessories, to virtual reality headsets and video games for the next generation of consoles and gaming PCs.
Reidline Advanced Materials has partnered with Activision Blizzard Inc. to create the Advanced Video Game Controller.
The Controller will be available in October for $199, according to Activision Blizzard.
