The Simraceway SRW-S1 Steering Wheel is a new racing wheel designed for computer racing games that forgoes pedals in favor of paddles. As any gamer who likes to play racing games knows, the choices of racing controllers fall into one of two categories: There are joypads designed for racing games and then there are full-on racing wheels and pedals.

Each of these controllers has both its perks and its pitfalls. The joypads don't give a sense of realism that the pedals and steering wheels do, yet the pedals and steering wheels are bulky and expensive. What's a gamer to do? Enter the Simraceway SRW-S1 Steering Wheel. This racing wheel has an astounding 15 buttons, three dials and a D-pad. The wheel's throttle and brake take the form of paddles and the steering is done using motion sensors that track the route of the wheel. The SRW-S1 combines the realism of a steering wheel and pedals with the size of an irradiated joypad. Who says you can't have your cake and then play 'Gran Turismo 5?'
