Play SMB3 with Biofeedback

Biomedical company develops muscle sensor based computer game controller; releases construction instructions to cultivate next generation of great minds and ideas.

Raleigh, NC, December 15, 2011 – Advancer Technologies has developed a plug-in-play USB device that harnesses the power of electromyography (EMG) to allow players to directly control computer games with their muscles. This technology is demonstrated in their latest video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kq9dfK_xM6o), in which they navigate their way through the first level of the classic Nintendo game Super Mario Brothers 3 using only the signals generated from their muscles. You can now make one for your own by going to Instructables.com and working your way through the tutorial (http://www.instructables.com/id/USB-Biofeedback-Game-Controller/). In these illustrated instructions, Advancer Technologies goes through each step in detail to reproduce and program this remarkable controller.

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80′s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
