So while PE teachers have begun spicing up their classes with DDR and Wii workouts, two creative geeks, Jennifer Chowdhury and Mehmet Sinan Ascioglu, have created Intimate Game Controllers, an oh-so-geeky (but also sexy!) platform where game controllers are built into undergarments so that players have to physically touch one another to play. Forget guys hiding in their mom's garage to play Halo 2 all night - this concept requires a little finesse and perhaps even a dinner date before you can even try it.
Apparently, Jenny began by creating a pong controller made from a bra with 6 sensors. Touching the left breast made the pong paddle go left and the right breast made the paddle go right. She followed that up with a man's controller that has 6 sensors set in a pair of shorts. The couple plays the game with the man standing behind the woman...and a round of touchy-feely gaming ensues.

I found out about a phenomenon called gamer widowhood where men essentially abandoned their wives to play video games night and day. I wanted to create a type of video game play that would center around a couple's intimacy and where two people would touch each other in order to play the game.
