    Syrian rebels create tanks operated with playstation controller

    http://news.yahoo.com/syrian-rebels-...020228394.html

    As Syria's rebels work to overthrow the tank-equipped Assad regime, they've learned that it helps to have tanks of their own. They deserve bonus points for integrating video game technology. This is no exaggeration. Have a look at the opposition forces' "100 percent made in Syria" armored vehicle, the Sham II.

    Named for ancient Syria and assembled out of spare parts over the course of a month, the Sham II is sort of rough around the edges, but it's got impressive guts. It rides on the chassis of an old diesel car and is fully encased in light steel that's rusted from the elements. Five cameras are mounted on the tank's exterior, and there's a machine gun mounted on a turning turret. Inside, it kind of looks like a man cave. A couple of flat-screen TVs are mounted on opposite walls. The driver sits in front of one, controlling the vehicle with a steering wheel, and the gunner sits at the other, aiming the machine gun with a PlayStation controller.

    This is awesome, albeit the crappy situation. Time to send some PS3 controllers over to the Syrian citizens.

    I'm sure they thought about using an Xbox controller, but then they realized they couldn't fit it inside the tank.

    Better keep a few extra USB's on deck. Are they using the COD or BF layout?? I personally prefer the COD. Good to know our money is being spent on fun ****.
