Often unfairly critiqued as an anti-social pastime, video games get extremely intimate and, well, interactive with Hye Yeon Nam's "Kiss Controller." Nam has devised a shy gamer's perfect challenge with a system that requires two tongues touching to control a custom bowling simulator. Players try their hardest to score.
"One person has a magnet on his/her tongue and the other person wears the headset. While they kiss, the person who has the magnet on his/her tongue, controls the direction and speed of the bowling ball for 20 seconds. The goals of this game are to guide the ball so that it maintains an average position in the center of the alley and to increase the speed of the ball by moving the tongue faster while kissing," Nam explains.
In the demo video above, the execution looks fairly awkward, what with the guy not knowing whether to close his eyes and everything. But we like this concept enough to spend seven minutes with it in a closet. As any gamer knows, practice makes perfect.
