This idea would revolutionize the world of gaming. Everyone knows that sometimes games can be a bit annoying at certain bosses or tasks you must complete, and yelling at videogames is not as effective as you would like it to be. Here is the solution.

It is a microphone input device that works for most games. If a particular part of the game just isn't going your way, yell your objections into the microphone. It will give you an edge in your game dependant on how loud you yell and the tone of your complaints (tone being whine, grunt, growl, hiss, scream, cry, etc.)

This could take a few lines of programming from voice recognition and place different variables on the severity of curses you are throwing at your machine as well!

       Damn straight!

(though this would only be for PC games where you tend to be on your own. If your playing multiplayer on a console, listening to your mates howl in frustration is the best part).

       On one side, it would be all kinds of fun to have some ai dialogue with the enemy, Dirty Harry style.   

       But as a parent, I think I'd be quite concerned at the reinforcement of violent behavior in my kids brought about by this.   

       Do we really want our kids to live in gameland all their lives?
