Give Video Game Addicts The Finger

NEW CANAAN, Conn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This holiday season, give the video game addict on your list the finger – literally.

Gamer’s Shield is a padded finger sleeve that video gamers can wear to reduce friction and ease the discomfort caused by prolonged pressure and pounding on the controller.

Creator Steven Ford says the product can take the sting and sweat out of the solitary screen sport, and you don’t have to be a professional player to appreciate the difference.

Ford says, “A lot of serious gamers build up callouses, but for novices, it’s great protection. It adds a whole new level of comfort.”

Ford’s finger-saving sleeve is an awesome alternative to more traditionally temporary solutions, such as using tape or Band-Aids to help hurting hands, and works especially well on what he calls ‘button-mashing games,” including sports and car racing competitions.

And for old school gamers, Ford’s padded product is a digit’s dream come true.

He says, “It works even better on older controllers that are less comfortable. If you’re still playing the original Nintendo, this is awesome!”
