The team at Waterloo Labs have designed a system that allows them to play NES games with the movement of their eyes.  By using electrodes strapped to their faces, which oddly enough look like someone dropped loads on them, these geeks can make Mario run, jump, and change directions.  It’s an impressive feat, but just watching them play gives me a headache.

To me, this technology almost seems like a form of torture.  Just watch their faces while they’re trying to play with their eyeballs.  You would think they’re going insane, or that they were trying to force rip their own eyeballs out of their sockets.  There’s a bit of scientific mumbo jumbo going on in the video, but it’s still worth checking out below.  You’ve been eye f*cked…
