London, Mar 6 : Have you ever jumped off your seat after being shot or crashed a car while playing a computer game? If not, then you better get ready for this, for a new gadget, called the Mindwire-V5 has been created that delivers a sharp zap through up to five pads worn on the body, when a gamer loses.
The gadget has been developed by Manchester University graduates, Clive Wrightson, 29, and Mark Williams, 31, who spent four years working on the device.
The gizmo will cost about 100 pounds and can be used with most games on PlayStation 2, Xbox and Nintendo Gamecube and should soon work with PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii.
"It gives gamers something to lose. No one is satisfied with just graphics and sound. They want to feel more involved," The Sun quoted Clive, as saying.
