Follow up: “Real” Operation Game – Wearable Electronics (Bad Idea)

Pt 101170

I posted a few old “wearable” projects yesterday, one of them I left out because I couldn’t find the files (and it was a bad idea) – but I found them today.

It’s “Real Operation”. This project (2001) used a live web interface, built in Macromedia Flash, that allowed the web visitor to play the game “operation” – if you touched the area surrounding the organ you needed to remove the web interface would log it and send a signal to wireless PDA that was connected to a modified “rumble suit” that would shake and shock me. The project really only demonstrated one thing, everyone on the web pretty much poked at the crotch area. This was about 10 years ago, a much better version could be made, but I’m not going to do it again.
