Video Bowling, powered by a kiss

by Mark R

Every once in a while, some device comes out that is so kooky (for lack of a better word) that you don’t even have to comment on it.

In this case, it is the kiss-powered bowling. I will explain how it works after the jump. You can also watch a video of it in case you think I’m totally making this up.

Here’s how it works:

…a customized headset that functions as a sensor receiver and a magnet that provides sensor input. The user affixes a magnet to his/ her tongue with Fixodent. Magnetic field sensors are attached to the end of the headset and positioned in front of the mouth. As the user moves her tongue, this creates varying magnetic fields that are used to control games.

Hye Yeon Nam, the creator of this kiss bowling game, says that the goal is to “increase the speed of the ball by moving the tongue faster”. Okay, I don’t know if I want to think about this any more.

So if you want to get a kiss on the first date, you could always take your date bowling. Okay, that’s probably the best joke that I can make on this. You are more than welcome to try out your own on the comment section.
