Tech Tuesday – Let’s Go Bowling

So, if you like video games (and who doesn’t) and if you like kissing your sweetie (and who doesn’t) – now you can do both at the same time. Courtesy of Engadget:

Oh, this isn’t weird at all! The Kissing Controller, an experimental project by one Hye Yeon Nam, is designed so that players of a bowling game can impart power and direction to their spherical projectile by performing the timeless act of smooching one another. A customized headset is required for one of the participants, acting as the input receiver, while the other straps a magnet to his or her tongue and goes to town with some literal full motion controls. Thrust is added to the on-screen ball in accordance with how vigorously you move your tongue around, something we’re sure your partner will appreciate. Video after the break.

And if you click through, you can watch it in action (WARNING: PG CONTENT!!!)
