I could make a WiFi enabled butt plug into a controller for something, it doesn't mean I should.

You absolutely should make a WiFi enabled butt plug controller for something.

Fun concept, but it seems like you could do so much more than a basic headbang motion if you had a directional sensor - tilting your head side-to-side, for instance, or rolling it.

I got very confused when I first read this post, because I parsed "game" as meaning "deer, elk, etc." Huntable things, you know...

Been done. Sort of. It doesn't control anything.

Yet. Get to it!

The song is a good pick. Even with my speakers muted, it's obvious what the song is from the pattern of headbanging.

What about a controller that senses when you've come up with a stupid idea?

I'm waiting for the sequel video, where he has a very tender, very lengthy make-out session with "Gabriella."
