Remember amBX? That was the Philips subsidiary that wanted to take PC games beyond the computer screen with flashing lights, rumbling wrist rests and even a pair of small fans to simulate the thrill of being in the open air without leaving your desktop? Well, it’s back with a new set of experience enhancing peripherals, the Cyborg amBX Gaming Lights.
A lot has changed for amBX since it launched its first – very expensive – kit in 2008. It’s been spun off as a separate company and quietly working away to develop its ideas into something a little more, um, cost effective for the average gamer. The first fruits of this work are now available via a partnership with Mad Catz under the Cyborg brand.
