Honestly, given many more years of development to make it much more precise, I could totally go for this as a gaming device. Having an extra hand to devote to the keyboard sounds great.
I doubt it would be much of a problem, electronics use low voltage DC current. Even if the thing had a short in your mouth, you would, in the worst case, get the same feeling as from a shocking pen, but since it's only a sensor I doubt it would get there. The USB itself has a 5V output, it barely does anything, except scare the crap out of an unsuspecting individual.1337mokro said:though it'd suck if it short-circuited.
Not bashing or anything, but a buddy of mine did get maimed overseas. We used to play games together frequently, but since he got back, there hasn't been much of a way to do so. It's been kind of a quiet heart-breaker. That aside, I work in IT for an organization that has several handicapped personnel. A device like this could be quite advantageous. Given that, I'm all for the inclusive qualities a device like this can enable.Mr.Mattress said:I don't know anyone, save people without arms, who would use a Tongue Mouse... It just seems like a really dumb way to work with a PC...
Actually soon as I saw it I thought it was an awesome way to get folks who were limited by either injury or birth defect a way to still play games... combined with other accessories. I have a couple acquaintances that I thought kinect would initially be good for, but later rethought that as it just wasn't well implemented or designed.MinionJoe said:And the first thought anyone had about this was "it wouldn't be good for gaming" and not "this could be useful for people with tetraplegia"?
