* Relaxation as gaming

Here's a new twist - a controller setup that degrades your performance if you're not relaxed while playing.

It'd be interesting to see these a bit more varied, or use the feedback on how stressed you are to alter game mechanics. But the tech's still in its infancy.

If you relax, the dragon spreads its wings and flies. If not, it stumbles all over the place. Schaefer said that some people, including his wife, have the ability to ?shut off? the stress they feel at work when they come home. When they?ve played the dragon game together, his wife?s dragon always flies speedily to the end, while Schaefer?s dragon futzes around at the starting line - in part because he?s still stressed from work.
