Hoping to optimize the gaming experience of FPS (first-person shooting), hardware startup PP Gun has created a gun-shaped controller that’s compatible with PC, mobile devices and Oculus. When players pull the trigger, the piston motor on PP Gun will run to simulate the feeling of recoil force.

The team believes that a small screen delivers a better FPS experience because control is more precise. The target now moves with the gun instead of being fixed on a 40′ TV. Its magazine box acts as the battery. When not in use, it turns into a portable power charger with USB ports.

Formerly a game designer and a frantic FPS gamer himself, co-founder Bruce Cao believes that shooting is the gist of FPS whereas other aspects like roaming comes next. That was why he created PP Gun with Jack Cai, an electronic engineer and Kevin Wang, an industrial designer.
