Trinity VR's Magnum is a virtual reality motion controller that will be sure to delight video game enthusiasts everywhere.

The Magnum allows users to grip it with either one or two hands, depending on the virtual reality experience in question. One hand transforms the controller into everything from a sword to a tennis racket; two hands allows it to become a semi-automatic weapon, fire hose or steering wheel of some sort.

Instead of using a screen, the Magnum uses a camera to keep track of where its pointing in relation to where your eyes are looking, creating a seamlessly integrated experience. Users feel like they're holding their gun, weapon, etc. through the screen, instead of in front of it, creating a higher level of engagement and interaction within the game.
