Shocking news about game controllers
boy is this intriguing. i just wonder how it would feel like playing CS in a lan party with all the players wearing/using such a controller. FUUUUNNNN!!!! BRING IT ON!!!
Hmm I thought when electricity comes in contact with the body it was considered being shocked! Muscle spasms will be caused by being shocked, duh. What do I know I am only an electrician.

In its current version, small wired pads attached to forearms transmit a mild electrical current, causing muscles to spasm when one's game character is hit. "Your muscles tense up and you can't defend yourself. You feel it as kind of a shock, but what you're really feeling is your muscles tightening up,''

This is it! The small strides toward the HoloDeck...Just think, laser burns, full body suits, then wild times eh?
I have read more on this and the current that you get is the same technology that has been around for years with those electric abb things you see on TV. You know where you sit there and your muscules flex on thier own and you get "strong". Same stuff. You dont feel "Shocked" you just feel a tingle.
