[prMac.com] Surrey, United Kingdom - In the past it has been very difficult to accurately measure reaction times but now iPhone(TM) technology has made this possible. The release of the iPhone(TM) and iPod touch game 'BATAK Duel' is a major step forward in the analysis of how fast people can react to different visual stimuli. The game pits players against 10 opponents with progressively faster reaction times. Other obstacles are introduced to players to test their hand-eye coordination abilities, for example, multiple target lights and deadly laser beam strikes.
Inventor of the BATAK(TM) sports equipment, Dr David Nelson, believes that human performance assessment will make heavy use of computer game interfaces in the future, "we have arrived at a stage in technology where mobile hardware such as the iPhone(TM) and iPod touch(TM) can be integrated with data gathering software such as OpenFeint(TM) in order to collect human performance data from potentially millions of people. In the case of the BATAK Duel gaming application this data represents reaction times and hand-eye coordination abilities. With this type of technology we are getting much closer to discovering the fastest man and woman alive."
* iPhone or iPod touch 2.2 or later
