Massage me Jacket game controller sounds like it could be kinky, but isn’t

Do me a favor. Before you read on, hit play and watch the video above, and then try to guess what exactly these wierdos are doing.

Believe it or not, this video displays a project that ends up being a wearable game controller of sorts. The Massage me Jacket is a kind of interface for video game play that requires two people: one to wear the jacket, and another to do the massaging. It’s too bad that wearing a neoprene jacket during a sensual massage is so… not hot.

The jacket has pressure-sensitive sensors embedded inside. The massage movements are sensed and sent to a hacked gamepad to control the video game of your choice. If things are beginning to sound a bit complicated, that’s because they are, and this Massage me Jacket is a three step do-it-yourself project.

I think it would be worth the trouble. Imagine the possibilities: you could hack a PS2 controller and pop in God of War, using the sex minigames for a strange kind of foreplay. But, if you’re going to go there, then this hack gets closer to the point.
