Nyko Air Flo EX for PC/Mac Ships with New Driver SoftwareGamers Can Enjoy Games With Downloadable Keyboard/Mouse Software (February 02, 2005)
The Air Flo(TM) EX controller for PC/Mac, boasting the patented Air Flo technology, is now available from Nyko Technologies(R).

Like its predecessor, the new and improved Air Flo EX ends problematic sweaty palms by blowing fresh air through the handgrips - giving gamers ultimate comfort while playing their favorite games. The controller also provides versatility by supporting Mac platform games as well. Dual fan speeds, another new feature, offer adjustable air flow intensity. The re-designed hand grips provide superior comfort, increased air circulation and precision.
The software available for the unit has been upgraded for the new Air Flo model and has a sleeker, simpler interface. The new driver software runs as a background application, so gamers can plug the controller into different USB ports. Convenient updates include the ability for users to choose which keystrokes, like W, A, S and D, are mapped to the analog stick. Each of the two analog sticks can be programmed independently as well.
