New Video Game Controlled By Kissing

unassimilatible writes "Artist Hye Yeon Nam has put her video game where her mouth is — literally — with the creation of a new bowling game that's controlled only by passionate (and awkward) French kissing. The Kiss Controller, as it's called, has two components: a headset that functions as a sensor receiver and a magnet that provides the sensor input, Time reports. Could this be the first example of technology that Slashdotters will be unable to use, as they likely won't be able to get a controller?"

How about a video game controlled by your genital? (1)

You win the game when you climax!

The next day, my alarm goes off
And I won in my pants

Open my window and a breeze rolls in
And I won in my pants

When Bruce Willis was dead at the end of Sixth Sense
I won in my pants

I just ate a grape
And I won in my pants

I am waiting for the girls virtual joystick stick controller that has shake weight action.

Sorry but the joystick controller doesn't belong to the girl model.

You must have never played Mario Party 8 on the Wii.

There's a soda shaking game, where you have to vigorously have to shake the wiimote up and down.

You might as well put it on the surface of 704 Interamnia for all the good it will do me.

Joe Snipe (224958) | more than 3 years ago | (#35285644)

I would've thought this sort of thing is right up the alley for the "average Joe sixpack" (pun intended).

Useless? I don't think Slashdotters are this game's target demographic.

My bad, I thought it targeted XBox only, confusion from a poster's penny-arcade link. Still relevant...

Just out of curiosity, is there a reason to choose that particular asteroid?

Okay, it's only with fixodent. Still seems silly.

Then again, Twister seemed silly – until I had someone to play Naked Twister with.

Someone, somewhere, wants to watch gay nerd porn.

FunkyRider (1128099) | more than 3 years ago | (#35285598)

I think the author of the controller is too horny, if she ever has a real boy to French kiss with, she wouldn't come up with something like this. Yo go satisfy her!

Re:In other news... (1)

spun (1352) | more than 3 years ago | (#35285680)

No, she's just trolling all the desperate lonely guys out there. Looks like it worked.

interesting sensors (2)

Takichi (1053302) | more than 3 years ago | (#35285660)

This seems like the type of devices they use for speech analysis in relation to tongue position. I wonder if this can be adapted for language coaching, or perhaps for field measurements of languages used in remote areas.

Not if someone adapts the controller to support fellatio. Endless entertainment. (indemnity: implies gender-neutrality!)

Yeah, that's true (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35285730)

This actually might be the first piece of technology we might not be able to use, as the controllers sure mus-- oh. I get it, very funny timothy.

Hot Geek Girl makes kissing game (3, Interesting)

really Hot Geek Girl invents kissing game Stuff the bowling thats Hot.

nschubach (922175) | more than 3 years ago | (#35285880)

The "bad" part is that her domain name could be mistaken for something else... http://www.hynam.org/ [hynam.org]

Re:Hot Geek Girl makes kissing game (1)

Darinbob (1142669) | more than 3 years ago | (#35288030)

To use it though, you have to kiss with your eyes open to see the screen. I usually get in trouble for watching TV while making out...

Bowling? (2)

deniable (76198) | more than 3 years ago | (#35285890)

I'm sure that's what will get most use of this controller. I foresee the 'adult' game producers lining up to do something with this.

Fixodent? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35285986)

The controller uses Fixodent? Wasn't that proved to be harmful? Not to mention not very sexy... Interesting idea though.

Should be interesting news here in Korea (2)

crossmr (957846) | more than 3 years ago | (#35286008)

Public kissing is still pretty taboo here, but they really like to run stories about Koreans doing interesting things, especially abroad, I wonder how this will get covered here.

unassimilatible (225662) | more than 3 years ago | (#35286142)

vindicate my stereotyping of Slashdotters in my submission. I am now quite convinced that we are dealing with living, breathing virgins.

Re:The comments in here... (2)

treeves (963993) | more than 3 years ago | (#35286422)

As opposed to the other kind?
I'm sure there are some weird /.ers, but I don't think non-breathing virgins are a significant demographic.

Re:The comments in here... (1)

Lennie (16154) | more than 3 years ago | (#35288366)

You got to wonder how many dead people in general are on slashdot or the internet for that matter.

Should be pretty close to zero.

Re:The comments in here... (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35289020)

Well, you can't vote online, so those in Chicago probably have little need for internet access.

Re:The comments in here... (1)

kubernet3s (1954672) | more than 3 years ago | (#35286732)

Given that everyone's said something different, I'm confused as to what response a non-virgin would give as their call sign. "That's stupid"? No, that's covered. "That's hot"? No, also covered. "That's technically interesting" No, also covered. I get it, everyone who posts on slashdot is a virgin because we're on the internet and only super NERDS use the internet because this is STILL THE 1970'S AND WE ALL HAVE POCKET PROTECTORS. You can tell because our houses are filled with toys and we ride a bike to work. Is OP also a fag?

You're a parody of yourself (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 3 years ago | (#35286870)

The fact that you responded in such an emotional, humorless manner to an obvious joke, suggests that you are, in fact, one of those borderline Asperger's sexless geeks.

Not so simple (2)

High "Score"! (1)

Grapplebeam (1892878) | more than 3 years ago | (#35287362)

Several people here are probably building their own controllers for this right now. And I don't mean building traps to catch people with. I mean sex robots. Or hell, even hooking up. Slashdot has a forum, right? "LFM for Kissing Game", the greatest matchmaking service for nerds since alcohol.

"magnet to his/ her tongue with Fixodent" Certainly nothing bad could come of that... Like kids swallowing the magnets. Very bad idea.
