Summary: This is an obsolete product and no longer manufactured. The company who developed this (sixsense) is already taking pre-orders for thier new and vaslty improved version of the product called STEM, due to ship in July and for only $50 more than this waaay overpriced set of old Hydras. People are scalping these at inflated prices due to explosive popularty of the Oculus Rift. Dont get ripped off, check out the STEM before buying this.
Summary: Having purchased other gaming mousepads this one sort of disappointed me. The art is great, I love it for that alone but the mouse pad itself is just a bit lacking. It's really thin, meaning any little nudge on the side will cause it to lump up and strait unrolled it barely lies flat. Even after a month of use now it's still got some roll left on one side.
Cords are pretty darn short and get in the way more than I thought.

Summary: I know I would have preferred the cordless version (who wouldn't) if it was avalible but I thought this wouldn't be that bad. Turns out I was wrong. The cords are pretty stiff so they get in the way a lot and often prevent the handles from setting in the base very well. As for the device itself it works very well and registers things nicely once configured.
Summary: I ordered the game; it took a a week to come which was fine, but then the game did not load from the DVD. The DVD loaded Steam and Steam proceeded to download the game from the internet. This took 24 HR!! The game is about as good as Lemmings you get one puzzle after another which is nice but not worth the time!
Summary: My friend is a developer for the hydra and convinced me to buy it (them?). I did, and for portal 2 this controller is incredible, but it feels kind of awkward with any other game. The tech is impressive and as accurate as advertised, but I am having a hard time finding anything to use it with. Wait for the programs to catch up with the technology. Really wanted to love this, but it is not quite there yet.
Summary: I didn't notice that this was a three-inch figure until I got it. Build quality is acceptable, though they should have made the light in the middle a separate round piece so it wouldn't have a seam (that would have been easy to do). Mine came with zebra stripes and was turret-closed. I wish all of them were turret-open, but these are too expensive for me to plunk down random amounts of cash on.
Summary: Its a cute little figure, but the pic can be deceiving- apparently there are two versions: one, the sides open and the other doesn't. You're already getting a color that you can't pick, be prepared for a model you can't pick either.
Summary: I got this as a birthday present. It was ordered off of ThinkGeek, where it is cheaper, however they are out of stock at the time of this review. I was very happy and lucky to get the white turret, as I wanted. It's very cute, however it tends to fail. There is a button on the left side to make it speak. Normally it says a line, the light flickering with the saying.
Summary: I was very excited to try this because I wanted to play the Portal 2 DLC. Unfortunately the controller has a very large learning curve. One major flaw is that you must be sitting centered directly in front of the base station for the motion to be picked up correctly, or at least I wasn't ever able to get it to work even remotely properly any other way. For me the controller also wants to point down all the time so I constantly have to tilt it up to be centered.
