    In advance of Nintendo'sE3 2010 press conference, Ubisoft has announced a new game that will use a heart rate sensor much like how I imagine the Nintendo Vitality Sensor will be used for its respective games. The title is called Innergy and its being described as "a new solution to control stress."

    No Caption Provided
    It's unclear if simply being alive and able to clamp a biofeedback monitor onto your finger is all that is needed to play, but the demonstration at E3 and the subsequent press materials sure make it seem so. 
     
    The gist of how the game works is tied to your resting heartbeat. A slower resting heart rate will somehow manipulate whatever is going on in the game. Innergy is also an instructional program that teaches users how to calm down, identify sources of stress, and breath slower. In turn, Ubisoft claims this reduces stress--even after short, five-to-ten minute sessions. 

      
    Innergy is due out in the first quarter of 2011 for the PC and Macintosh.

    I'm buying it, when I had adhd problems before, I tried this biofeedback where I had to learn how to control my heart rate. It seems like I lose concentration of my task automatically if I can't learn to shut down my thoughts then I get stressed. Honestly this could overall help me in many different ways and stuff. If you want to play the game without that biofeedback use a thermonmeter on your finger and try to lower the temperture. If you can control this, you can control stress, which will make your concentration better and your life less stressful. Biofeedback equipment is expensive, so getting something like this makes me excited.

    This game looks prime for a South Park spoofing.

    Me too. I just punch myself in the face, knocking myself out, and poof, I'm totally relaxed. 
     
    That is what you're talking about, right?
