Robomodo Sees Its Skateboard Controller As A "Platform" Rather Than A "Peripheral"

Hands-On Tony Hawk: Ride E3 Game Preview »


You might think that just because Robomodo's skateboard peripheral for its upcoming skateboarding title Tony Hawk: Ride is, well, a skateboard, that its uses will be limited to only board-based sports (surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, etc.) in the future. However, that would be quite shortsighted of you, so I'll just pretend you didn't mention it.

Robomodo president Joshua Tsui told VideoGamer during E3 2009 that his company sees the board "less as a peripheral" and more as a "platform." Tsui believes that there are a number of different ways the board could be incorporated into a wide variety of titles. Sadly, every time I look at the "platform," all I see is a skateboard, so I guess I won't be the guy who figures out how to do something truly unique with it.

Any ideas how the board could be used in some non-sports-related way? I'd like to see the board incorporated into a futuristic open-world game as a hover-board or some sort. I've got a Pit Bull now!
