Activision is proud to present some exciting news about its revolutionary new peripheral, the Top Shot Fearmaster. Utilizing heartbeat sensors on the controller’s grips and an infrared camera on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions only. The Fearmaster can actually detect a gamer’s heart rate and hand stability. As any hunter knows, keeping cool, calm, and collected is key for creating a more precise shot. This is no different in Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013.
This innovative controller utilizes two heartbeat monitors, as well as a motion sensor, to track your heart rate and your subtle movements. If the player’s heart rate is high and hand is unsteady, their view on screen will be blurred making it more difficult to aim. As a player settles, the scope will sharpen and the animal’s vitals will appear so players can fire their weapon with greater accuracy.
The Top Shot Fearmaster is powered by unique sensor fusion technology that merges input from a heart rate monitor and an infrared camera. The software searches for specific breathing-induced patterns in the player’s heartbeat and correlates them with hand stability to determine the player’s focus level and how likely they are to line up the kill shot.
Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013 will be available with the Top Shot Fearmaster on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on the 23rd October for $79.99. The game will also be available for the Wii with the new Top Shot peripheral for $59.99.
