Have you ever been frustrated playing video games in the past? Some people just get too frustrated after playing games for too long. Immersion is a wearable device developed to address this very issue. It uses an optical pulse sensor, built into the earpiece, to record the user’s heart rate. The sensors reads color changes in the user’s ear tissue to estimate a pulse.
The headset can be synced wirelessly over Bluetooth to any computer running a compatible game. Here is the fun part: the game characters adapt to the input received from the pulse sensor. So when you are feeling great, the game is easier, and when you are not calm, enemies get harder to kill. Immersion aims to use visual and haptic feedback to help you avoid gamer rage. Can’t say how effective it is but the idea sound very interesting.
