Talismoon brings tilt sensitivity to Xbox 360â„¢ – introducing the Tiltboard!
8th June 2007 â€“ At long last itâ€™s time for Xbox 360â„¢ owners to feel the benefits of tilt sensation, something of which PS3â„¢ owners have been privileged to since its inception. Moreover, the Nintendo Wiiâ„¢ is a prime example of just how instrumental interactive controllers can be in providing a highly enjoyable gaming experience.
Talismoon is delighted to the release the second generation of its tiltBoard controller, featuring a high quality design sporting powerful features which are easier to use than even PS3â€™s SIXAXISâ„¢ controller.
Talismoonâ€™s tiltBoard sports a unique u-shaped board that puts the two tiltBoard control buttons within easy reach of gamers fingers. This gives gamers the ability to make on the fly tilt adjustments in-game, as needed.
The Tiltboard comes pre-loaded with tiltTune â„¢ technology, which is the most user friendly firmware available for such a device. Gamers have the ability to perform the following functions, in game:
1. Adjust the tilt sensitivity: useful for getting accustomed to tilt control.
2. Adjust the 0 degree point: to allow holding the controller at the most comfortable angle
3. Invert the Y axis: to add realism to flying games
4. Turn the tilt function on and off
Everything required to enjoy the latest sensation in console gaming on Xbox 360â„¢ comes in a convenient package and requires only seven wires to solder.
This product is currently schedule to ship during the second half of June 2007. For more information on this or any of Talismoonâ€™s other innovative products, all members of the gaming media and retail buyers are welcome to contact [email protected].

Read on for information written by Adam Thole about the tiltBoard 360 and tiltTune technology.
The Talismoon tiltBoard 360 has a unique PCB that allows itself to be mounted on the inside of an Xbox 360 Controller. It has two buttons, both of which are easily accessible on the outside of the controller
(without removing any batteries). One button is dedicated to the tiltTune technology and the other button switches between the analog stick or tilt for input to the controller and allows the user to invert
the y-axis of either. A normal press of the button will flip between the analog stick and the tilt for input. A long press (greater than one second) will invert the y-axis of whatever is currently active (either the analog stick or the tilt input). Another long press will return it to it’s original state.
The tiltBoard 360 boasts several new features including tiltTune technology. The tiltTune technology found on the tiltBoard 360 allows you to adjust the sensitivty and the center point of the tiltBoard. To set the sensitivity, simply tilt your Xbox 360 controller with the tiltBoard 360 installed as far left or right as you want to go and as far up or down as you want to go. Then simply press the tiltTune button to set those current angles (both axes) as your maximum tilt. To re-center the tiltBoard 360, simply hold the controller how you feel comfortable and press the tiltTune button for one second. Your new center point is now whatever position you are currently holding your controller in.
Once you get the settings how you like with the tiltTune technology, you don’t have to worry about needing to change them again when you turn off your controller or change batteries. The tiltBoard 360 stores all of your current preferences into memory that is non- volatile, so every time you turn on your Xbox 360 controller, it will be in the same state it was when you turned it off. To restore the tiltBoard 360 to factory settings, simply hit both buttons at once.
I really think that this is by far the best tilt device on the market for the Xbox 360, not to mention the original. Please contact your local dealer and tell them you want a Talismoon tiltBoard!
