Gravis Stinger is a serial game pad designed especially for laptop use even though it can also be used on Windows PC that has a serial port as well as the correct drivers. Instead of the standard game port popularly used by many game pads, this device uses a normal nine pin RS – 232 serial.

The device comes along with a CD that contains software that is compatible with several windows operating systems. However, the device is not compatible with the beta version.
