In RAGE Control, users with elevated heart rates lose the ability to shoot enemy spaceships and must calm down to get their game back on. The game, called RAGE Control (short for Regulate and Gain Emotional Control), employs a finger heart rate monitor; users with elevated heart rates actually lose the ability to shoot enemy spaceships. Researchers say the idea is to teach kids to better control their emotional responses -- and specifically to reduce outbursts of anger or frustration -- by reaching certain targets. Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital just released promising Clinical test results.
