Blood Sport: The Ultimate in Immersive Gaming had its account suspended on Kickstarter, raising just $3,390 of the requested $250,000. The console game controller would have been used as a blood collection unit that drew blood any time a gamer was wounded while playing a video game.

The system would have requested each gamer to provide height, weight, and details of pre-existing medical conditions before the session began.

The project has been active on Kickstarter since November 18, and Kickstarter has a policy not to discuss why certain projects are suspended. Blood Sport has remained media silent, not responding to media requests from multiple outlets.
