WAVE OF THE FUTURE
The hands-free game controller, developed by physicist Tom Chen, allows you to control a character by flexing your lady parts and is set to launch this January.
It's the workout no one wants to discuss in public—incredibly boring and with physical benefits that can't be admired in the mirror or photographed for Facebook. Yes, I am speaking of the dreaded Kegel workout. As far as exercise routines go, this one isn't on many ‘favorites’ lists. But new technology hopes to change all that.
SKEA (Smart Kegel Exercise Aid) is a hands-free game controller that probably won't give Microsoft's Kinect a run for its money, but it might end up in a lot of ladies’ purses. Inserted into the vagina, this particular controller is operated with the pelvic muscles, requiring the user to squeeze in order to play the game. Thanks to a Kickstarter campaign launched last summer that exceeded its goal, physicist Tom Chen’s innovative product is already in production with plans to launch by the end of January.
