Tresling – arm wrestling game controller



Meet Tresling, a newfangled competitive sport which combines the physical challenge of arm wrestling with the mental intensity of Tetris. This video has been making the rounds. It’s so over the top, I can’t help but appreciate it:

The site is scant on details, but as far as I know, this represents the first arm-wrestling human computer interface. The NES brought us guns and running pads. The Wiimote a tennis racket, fishing pole, and boxing glove. If you can get past the initial craziness of Tresling, it’s actually an interesting hack in that it’s a completely new category of game play made possible by a clever homebrew controller.

    This is a cool video, but it is super old, there has to be better stuff out there by now.
