There has been a disturbing incident involving an OceanGate submersible, aka Titan submarine, that has left many deeply unsettled. This underwater transport, carrying five passengers, captured significant attention when all communication with the surface suddenly ceased. Distressing news followed, revealing that the passengers had a limited window of approximately 70 hours before the submersible’s oxygen supply would be exhausted. The gravity of the situation stirred widespread concern and apprehension. Now the Internet is trolling Logitech’s F710 controller, which was used to steer the submersible.
Trolls Leave Reviews For Titan Submarine Controller On Amazon
Tragedy struck during an expedition involving the Titan submarine, which aimed to explore the depths and search for the Titanic shipwreck. Unfortunately, this journey did not conclude as planned, and the news of all five passengers aboard losing their lives spread worldwide.
As investigations unfolded, it was revealed that the Titan submarine had been operated using an outdated Logitech video game controller commonly used by children at home. The use of such a controller for a mission of such magnitude raised significant concerns and questions about the safety protocols and equipment involved in the operation.
The use of Logitech’s F710 controller, originally designed for PC gaming and available at an affordable price, on an expensive and advanced OceanGate submersible raises serious concerns. The F710 Wireless Gamepad, launched in 2010 and still being sold by Logitech, was not specifically designed or intended to meet the stringent standards required for professional submersible operations.
Given the significant difference in cost and complexity between the submersible, estimated to be worth over $250,000, and the relatively inexpensive gamepad priced at $30, it is evident that the controller was not intended for use in such a high-stakes and specialized environment. The mismatch between the affordability and capabilities of the gamepad and the demanding nature of submersible operations has sparked discussions about the selection and suitability of equipment in critical scenarios.
