Gamers can be very protective of their controllers. It’s totally understandable as no one wants to have to buy a brand new controller simply because the other has been suffocated by Cheeto dust. However, you would absolutely have to wash your hands before using this controller.
Dead Or Alive is a fighting game primarily known for its voluptuous female characters that have a complete disregard for modest clothing choices. The characters are designed to stimulate gamers, so two artists named Daniele Hopkins and Kyle Duffield took it upon themselves to up the stimulation factor while playing these sexually suggestive games by designing a PlayStation controller in the shape of a wearable bra.
The duo then invited people to test the controller out while they wore them. Both of them had players battling against each other while controlling their character using the controller they wore.
Although the game is all about objectification of women, the duo insists the motivation behind the controllers were the exact opposite. They wanted to people to know what it feels like controlling real bodies rather than the on-screen over the top ones.
The project first popped up back in 2013 but has been gaining traction again due to several Reddit posts about the same. The couple are based in Toronto, Canada and has the following to say about the concept.
The artists use their own bodies to challenge exaggerated representations of the human body in the fighting game.
The audience is confronted with the challenge of having to compete with one another in the game by manipulating the controllers worn by the artists.
You can check out the video below which shows people trying out the game using these ‘human’ controllers.
Would you ever consider trading in your standard controller for a bra controller?
