This gamer uses her lipstick as a controller in Counter-Strike

Playing a first-person shooter with a mouse and keyboard is passĂ© — prepare for the future, where cosmetics are the controllers of the future.

Tune into Chloe Desmoineaux’s Twitch channel and you’ll spot her taking on foes in Counter-Strike using a tube of lipstick.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

She uses a mouse to navigate across the map (the left button lets her move around while the right button is for aiming); her lipstick, connected to her computer using a Makey Makey kit, acts as a weapon trigger when she raises it to her lips and completes the circuit.

Desmoineaux will stream her Lipstrike sessions on Twitch until June.
