The idea is sound enough. "With the introduction of games and entire consoles using novel controllers like the Nintendo Wii, Guitar Hero, and Dance Dance Revolution, I’ve become interested in how game interfaces can change the way players interact with one another off the screen" JennyLC says.
It all started with a design school assignment to create a controller for a game of Pong. JennyLC, for some reason, decided to create it using a bra. "The mapping for the controller would be simple: touching the left breast made the pong paddle go left and the right breast made the paddle go right."
From here things sort of spiralled out of control and eventually the full set was born, a bra for the female player and boxer shorts for the male.
"Each controller is embedded with 6 sensors placed with varying degrees of intimacy in relation to the body part with which they correspond" Jenny says, continuing "Players must pass game levels together and in doing so, game play results in increasingly intimate positioning."
And who said that gaming geeks were unsociable loners? It certainly brings a whole new dimension to your average Halo 3 deathmatch...
