Boffins in Japan.....

I didn't even know they had boffins in Japan. I thought those kinds of birds were found only in the Americas. Wait, what the f*ck are "boffins"?

Because what I want in my games is the ability for them to make me feel pain.

Japanese boffins

I really cannot read any further. That word just seems incredibly juvenile to me, like when little kids say they have to go make caca.

Most tablets fit well in a gallon ziplock bag. Keeps it waterproof, and the touchscreen works through the plastic.

I had to look it up, its slang for Scientist/Engineer.

I really shouldn't have to turn on my translation software for British websites.

I have an iPad mini in a Lifeproof waterproof case that works just fine while soaking in the tub.

FTFA: Poking up a finger from underneath the water's surface has the same effect as placing a digit on a regular touchscreen display, allowing the user to move and object about wherever their finger goes.

In a similar way, two fingers will enable the user to enlarge, shrink or rotate an object, while pulling five fingers through the water can be used to delete or pause, according to the university's Yasushi Matoba.

"One gesture I think is especially unique to fluid displays is, you can scoop up an object along with water, and drag and drop it," he explained.


............ummmm, i don't know what to say

"Until now, video games haven't made people feel pain, right? Even with haptic feedback, all that happens is the controller vibrates," he said. "But with this system, it might be possible to give a tactile stimulus to any part of the body."
He means the penis right. Why would you want to cause pain to the penis.
