Planet Licker Is a Game Controller That You Play by with Your Tongue


(Video Link)

This is perfect for gaming night with your friends! Planet Licker is a game that you play with a special USB-connected controller. It doesn't have buttons, but popsicles. To activate them, lick them. The goal is to maneuver around mines to lick every planet in the region. Gamasutra interviewed the creators at a recent convention:

Why popsicles? Did you test out any other edible items?

FRANK: Our first test used ice cubes. We considered gelatin because of its moldable properties, but the idea of licking gelatin seemed too weird because that’s not a gesture you normally perform with that food when you eat it. Ice pops work because they are something people lick anyway, and they’re able to take on the form of most any shape we design on the computer as a 3D model. We’re still considering making the controller in candy, but it would require a bit of extra engineering as sugar isn’t conductive enough for our game.
