Unlike most games that are controlled via external controllers, the Guts Game uses an ingestible sensor in the form of a pill, with which the players control the game by varying their gut temperature. With the Guts Game, we show that the usage of gut temperature as a game input is feasible and demonstrate that experiencing your body as play, via an ingestible sensor, can be a mesmerizing play experience.
