Sealed with kiss
The way we control video games has evolved drastically over this generation, we have a myriad of options in the form of cameras and wands. We motion track via a number of technologies including gyroscopes, motion capture and 3D cameras. However all of these devices rely on body movements and players limbs, but now you can game with the power of your tongue and a kiss.
The Kiss Controller works with magnets and varying magnetic fields in order to control games. One player attaches a small tongue magnet, whilst the other wears a headset receiver that senses direction and speed of the magnet.
The mind boggles at the potential application for the controller, who knows gaming may enter an era of love, piece and flower power. Game tournaments might be changed forever with such a device? OK maybe not but I was amused while writing this news piece!
