At the very beginning of a computer game you have to decide how difficult you want the game to be. Imagine if the computer game could detect the level of stress you experience when playing a game and change the difficulty accordingly. Researchers in Texas have achieved this by using heat sensing cameras to detect stress prompting a change in the game difficulty
List other ways that sensors could be used to enhance people’s gaming experiences.
