Everyone seems to be cashing in on the motion controlled gaming market today. After Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft followed suit with the Move and Kinect respectively. And the success all three enjoyed has cemented the fact that motion controlled gaming is here to stay. Now it’s only a matter of time before someone takes this tech to the next level, and it looks like that someone is Hye Yeon Nam who’s come up with a rather intimate method of gaming.
The Kiss Controller as it’s called will allow two players to play games while passionately locked in a French kiss. The controller is comprised of two parts; “a customized headset that functions as a sensor receiver and a magnet that provides sensor input. The user affixes a magnet to his/ her tongue with Fixodent. Magnetic field sensors are attached to the end of the headset and positioned in front of the mouth. As the user moves her tongue, this creates varying magnetic fields that are used to control games.“
And you thought gaming was for kids
Case in point, the bowling game demoed with this controller where one person guides the ball with his/her tongue (that sentence sounds wrong on so many levels). Besides bowling I’m sure there are a ton of sports out there that would make perfect kissing games, as long as players can concentrate on actually playing the game.
While I really don’t know what to make of controller, I only hope Nam comes up with something that allows gamers to umm play with themselves.
