Move over touchscreens and gestural interfaces, artist Hye Yeon Nam has created video game input hardware that uses intimate moments between players to control a game.

The Kiss Controller enables users to control a bowling game by moving their tongues while kissing. The controller requires one user to place a magnet on their tongue that provides a sensor input while the other wears a headset that acts as the sensor receiver. When the players kiss, the one with the magnet affixed to their tongue is able to control the direction and speed of the bowling ball by moving the tongue accordingly.

The pleasure of kissing and the thrill of gaming, both rolled into one. Well, we know you won’t leave without watching a video of this creative concept, so here it is:
