Feb 22 2011The Kissing Game: A Tonsil-Hockey Controller
God, GET A LANE!
Lane -- get it?! No? Obviously you're not a golfer. This is a couple demonstrating the Kiss Controller developed by Hye Yeon Nam that allows a player to provide sensor input by tongue-kissing (the sessiest kind!) the everliving hell out of somebody else. Fine, but if she tries stealing my gum I WILL start biting.
How does Kiss Controller work? It's done with magnets. One of the players provides sensor input with a small magnet stuck to the tongue, while the other wears a headset receiver that senses the direction and speed of that magnet. According to Hye, the object of the game is to "increase the speed of the ball by moving the tongue faster while kissing."
This obviously making its way into some sad virtual reality sex game aside, I'm not sure how I feel about making out with my roommate just to beat a level in Mario. Dude's handsome and all, but still. He doesn't shave often enough. That said, I want to see a game controlled by licking the floor. And by floor I mean carpet. And by carpet I do NOT mean vagina. I'm talking about pretending you're a human vacuum. Just sayin', there's a dead bug by the couch with your name on it!
Hit the jump for a short video of the tongue-kissin' game in action.

Thanks to Shenanigans, who's holding out for a game controlled by rubbin' boobs. IT EXISTS IT'S CALLED FOREPLAY, BROSKI.
