The Joydick Lets Players Play With Themselves To Play

Illustration for article titled The Joydick Lets Players Play With Themselves To Play

SF Media Labs' "Joydick" is probably what you think it is: not safe for work in every which way. It's also "a wearable haptic device for controlling video gameplay based on realtime male masturbation."

Oh, science. What are we going to do with you? And by that, I mean what took you so long?

As one can see from the NSFW(!) video demonstration of the Joydick in action, the device attaches to one's ring-finger and man parts (the "Linus"), allowing for four degrees of movement and rapid fire button presses via hand-strokes. It's all about transcendence, according to its creators.

SF Media Labs' web site provides a list of the essential parts and programming required to make your own Joydick, should you be so inclined. Perhaps you can unseat our own Owen Good as the King of Stampede.


Or perhaps there's just a Wii joke in here that you're dying to get out.

The only complaint i have with this thing is that this would require me to have and maintain an erection while playing centipede, pac-man, defender, space invaders etc etc. which i don't think i could do. I mean as cute as ms pac mans bow is, it's weird to think about her going down on me and fulfill my fantasy.

that i would basically be beating off to pixels. not smooth polygons. and theres no converter that makes moaning noises instead of zapping noises.

so basically they should import a bunch of those erotic games from japan over here and this thing could get put to good use.
