Blood Sport is Brand & Grotesque‘s Kickstarted campaign that hopes to develop a gaming blood collection system.
How It Works
Most controllers come with a rumbling system where the controller vibrates whenever you take a hit. What Blood Sport aims to do is take the rumbling system of your controller and turn it into a blood collection system where blood will be drawn intravenously every time you take a hit in the game.
The blood collection machine will be connected to your controller via an Arduino Board. This will send a signal to the blood collection system when you’ve been hit, while at the same time monitoring how much blood is being extracted to shut down the Blood Sport before you do. The system will know to power down based on your age, weight and medical condition.
The system will work with any gaming console that has controllers with the rumbling function.
The whole point of Blood Sport is to raise awareness for blood donation and to make donating blood a more enjoyable experience.
