This Video Game Is Controlled By Smooches, Will Never Be Played By Real Gamers
When has combining two things you loved ever turned out badly? Peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, caffeine and alcohol. Putting two good things together always creates a great thing. See also: kissing and video games.
An……um….artist? ….by the name of Hye Yeon Nam decided that Wii bowling would be way better if, instead of using a cheap plastic accessory, you could use your tongue to play the game. Who are we to disagree?
And no one can argue with Nam’s conclusion:
“Kissing is an intimate behavior that can be developed into a game device. It has not yet been proposed in the game industry. Kiss Controller shows how the human tongue can be used to control a game and how people can become creatively involved in a game.”
Well, maybe the industry hasn’t tried to push kissing as a form of game control, but I, for one, will not rule out any form of game control that will improve on my current methods. And I love games like Doom, Half-Life, and Portal*.
