Novint Falcon: Experience games in 3D

Imagine being able to distinguish picking up heavier or ligher objects, pushing a door open, or even pulling or twisting objects in your favorite games. The Novint Falcon USB Game Controller is one of the first consumer friendly devices that allows gamers to experience 3D texturized environments. Okay, this contoller is not yet usable in all games, but there are some mods out there for Half-Life2 and Penumbra. I wonder how sturdy the arm mechanisms are and how durable they'll be. The specs say it weighs 6lbs and it moves 4" x 4" x 4".
