Sony’s hastily announced PlayStation Move racing wheel proves that appearances aren’t everything. The peripheral might look unwieldy at first, but it’s actually packing some interesting technology beneath the surface, as this video with Sony's Anton Mikhailov demonstrates.

For example, the peripheral boasts a series of additional rumble motors for enhanced feedback, twisting throttle functions for motorbike games, and improved analogue triggers for precise acceleration and braking. It might look hideous, but – whisper it – this thing actually seems pretty darn cool.
