The Peregrine allows you to trigger commands in your favorite games just by touching your fingers with your thumb. It’s that simple. Quick, easy, deadly. The glove has 3 Activator Pads – one on the thumb tip, another on the middle of the thumb, and one on the palm. Whenever these Activator Pads make contact with a Touch Point on a finger, a “keystroke” is instantly sent to the game. Each finger has 5 TouchPoints. And that’s it. Touch for the Win!
The Peregrine allows you to react more quickly in intense gaming situations. It’s especially effective when you want to combo a series of actions quickly - your fingers don’t have to jump all over the keyboard, and everything is literally right at your fingertips. You don’t have to look down for keys and lose valuable seconds of focus. Also, you aren’t forced to hold your hand on the keyboard in various positions for hours on end. With The Peregrine, you just relax and sit however you want!
The current version of The Peregrine is most effective for:
MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings Online
MOBA style games like League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, and DotA
RTS titles like StarCraft 2 and WarCraft III (Use "grid" layout for SC2)
The Peregrine is great for any game in which you are required to use lots of hotkeys and need to respond quickly. Some people enjoying using The Peregrine for tower defense games and other cool niche applications. A few users program The Peregrine for FPS titles like Counter-Strike and Call of Duty, however it is not recommended as a replacement for WASD movement keys and may not be ideal for FPS games. If you want to use The Peregrine for FPS games make sure you think through how you will program it for your particular game.
Most gamers learn the basics within 5 minutes, and after playing for about an hour are very comfortable using The Peregrine. We have seen professional gamers do incredible things with the glove after only a few hours of use. It all depends on the individual, but most people should plan on spending about an hour getting used to it.
There are stainless steel conductive traces running up the face and back down the side of each finger on the Peregrine glove. When these traces make contact with the thumb tip or another Activator Pad, the "pod" senses the electrical resistance to determine where exactly you are touching along the wire. When you calibrate The Peregrine, you tell it which area on the conductive trace you want to touch (we call these areas Touch Points) and assign a character to that Touch Point. When the thumb makes contact with a specific Touch Point, the pod instantly triggers that character, and BOOM: ownage ensues.
They are visual indicators of suggested Touch Points. They do not actually detect touches.
The Peregrine hardware uses standard HID keyboard drivers and will work on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The configuration software that allows you to assign keys and calibrate the glove is currently available for Windows, and a Mac version is on the way. Once you have configured the device, you can plug it into any system that uses standard keyboard drivers (Windows, Mac OS X and Linux) and The Peregrine will keep its stored settings, and just work!
Yes! The Peregrine works essentially as a keyboard on your hand. You can configure the glove to trigger all sorts of commands, and applications won’t notice the difference between the glove and a regular keyboard. If you can use a keyboard for it, you can use The Peregrine! So get creative and have some fun… or do some work. The glove's a precision tool, and it’s up to you how you use it.
The Peregrine is currently only available for the left hand. It’s designed for gamers who use their right hand to mouse, and their left hand to type. But don’t worry, lefty mouse users, we won’t forget about you. We're working on it. Just give us some time
It’s very durable. The sensors were developed for the US Military. But even though it’s tough, please take good care of it. It’s still made out of fabric and will wear and tear faster if you abuse it. You wouldn’t want to abuse a Peregrine would you? If taken care of, the Peregrine should last you a very long time.
There is a 1 year warranty on electronics and a 6 month warranty of glove. Please see the website for more details.
The glove is designed to be (gently) hand washed. So, give it a bit of warm soap and water, some time to dry, and you'll be ready to go again.
May we assuage your fears! The glove is ventilated and completely breathable. Some users have reported suffering sweatier hands while using their keyboards as compared to flying high and dry with the glove. Our hardcore testers have played for over 8 hours continuously with the glove on and have reported no sweating issues.
Yes! No actions are executed unless a Touch Point comes in contact with an Action Pad, so you can use your keyboard normally with the glove on. With a little practice, most users can reach their desired WPM while typing with the glove on.
We will eventually release special versions of The Peregrine for consoles, but it’s going to be a little while.
It was determined that in order to get the absolute best reaction time from The Peregrine to your computer, we needed to go wired. In our years of testing, we found that all of the world's best professional gamers use wired peripherals in order to maintain the best performance possible. While we will still eventually roll out a wireless version, we found that after a little while, most gamers didn't even notice the cord during daily sessions at their computers.
There are three sizes currently available: small, medium, and large. Before you order, please make sure you read the sizing chart carefully. A nice, form-fitting glove will make your Peregrine gameplay experience much better.
We'll release different styles and colors in the future, and even plan to eventually release customized gloves to go with specific games. As new glove styles come out, users will be able to simply snap their existing pod into the new glove, and keep gaming without missing a beat.
Yes. Our current setup allows the palm pad to handle modifier keys like CTRL, ALT and Shift so you can perform popular shortcuts.
With some basic configuring, The Peregrine can certainly be used in drafting and design applications. Many designers and drafters have expressed strong interest in using The Peregrine to trigger shortcuts in such programs, with a glove on one hand, and mouse or tablet in the other. This arrangement would not only make things easier and more efficient, but it would also improve posture and provide a more comfortable way to interact with your design or drafting program. Please note that the Peregrine currently cannot bind macros to a single Touch Point through the GloveBox configuration software, so an additional macro program such as AutoHotKey may be required for programming certain functionality.
