"Boot Fetish Controller" Will Spank You in Pong

"Boot Fetish Controller" Will Spank You in Pong

image

A U.K. man has invented a "boot fetish Pong game" that's controlled by groping a knee-high stiletto boot - and that punishes you whenever you lose a point.

James Larsson looks normal enough but hidden deep beneath his calm, rational, pleasantly-accented exterior beats the heart of a raving mad scientist. As shown in a recent BBC video report, Larsson's inventive ways have led him to build an automatic cat food dispenser out of a VCR and a meat grinder, an electronic (and dangerous) Conkers game made of lightbulbs and a pair of headphones and an even more dangerous "steady hands" game that involves loops of metal and 20,000 volts.

But most interesting of all is his boot fetish game controller, a leather-and-electronics contraption that lets gamers indulge two dubious pastimes at once. The boots are connected to an old Pong game; players control the game by "groping and fondling" them in different spots in order to move the paddles up and down. For a little added kink, the device punishes players with a leather whip each time they lose a point. It even includes a "severity of whip" control to ensure that nobody gets spanked too hard - or not hard enough.

What do you say about something like this? The design is very rudimentary but with some further development and fine-tuning, I could see the boot fetish controller leading the way to the next generation of immersive force-feedback controllers. As for Larsson himself, I would never presume to judge someone based on an internet video alone, but I suspect the reporter was on to something when she said, "You look like you're enjoying this a bit too much."

This either sounds like this guy has some secrets, or that he just wants to get somebody to play this version of Pong.

Being able to say that you convinced even one person to play Fetish Pong is good conversation material.

Dear god... imagine what hooking Battletoads up to that would cause? You ass would be decimated.

I feel sore just thinking about it.

Finally, a peripheral that isn't just about milking us for our money.

Why don't we just cut to the chase and hook up Desert Bus to this machine. You have to turn the Severity up really high, though, to prevent people from leaving.

I find this much more awesome than I should. The video had some other cool stuff in it too, like the Incandescent Lightbulb game.

That is very interesting. I wouldn't call him a mad scientist, though. Just a guy with old electric appliances that knows how they work.

I wouldn't go as far as calling an electronic button that activates a whip the prelude of something that will stop your wiimote in mid-air.

Well, that's... oddly interesting.

Modified electronics are always fun. Especially if you throw a masochistic fetish in the mix.

Heh, that's pretty interesting. I wonder if it works on other Atari games than Pong or even Nintendo and Sega games.

well that is interesting i must admit i expected the boot to kick you if you lost a point... not be the controller

Finally a way of combining my love of BDSM and Gaming in one.

Good for you, you stitched a pair of button to a shoe! Now for some real news?

I expected this as well, like a kick in the balls. Now that would be interesting. I doubt games would last beyond 3 points.

I imagine that compining the boot game with a large amount of alcohol could lead to an entertaining night :)

Fetishists Rejoice!

Seriously, why is this guy not famous?

VCR fed cat: "Aww man, re-runs again? Who taped over my favorite dinner?"

He is definately, DEFINATELY insane.

And he sounds like a legend! Bar the whip thing.

No, instead it's about bleeding you - of your blood.

itsss funni

Anyway, I am at a loss for words - couldn't he just hire a dominatrix when he plays Pong or something?
It's got to be easier to conceal.

Wow1 Some needs another job if they have the time to make something like this.

I like it when people are inventive, even when it seems as disturbing as this. It gives me hope for people, that even when we do something stupid we can have a blinding moment of intelligence that makes up for it.

I don't have that fetish, but I'd play it just for the lulz.

This dude must be a hit at parties.

I have no words for this.

Someone else clearly shares Yahtzee's dream of a force feedback codpeace...

First reaction to this: "Eh?"
Second reaction: "Erm..?"
Third: "Wuh?"
Two minutes of incoherence later...

"Who would actually walk into a shop and buy this?!"

I can imagine a scenario where I'm walking into a store and picking this up and a family of 3 children and their grandparents walk into the store and give me a horrified look...

Oh come on.. EVERYBODY dreams of having a force feedback ANYTHING in that... umm area down there *g*.

But seriously: We need more fully interactive force-feedback tentacle-rape games *g* Maybe even with online play... 10 men, 1 girl. Humm... i am leaving now *g*
