This paper presents a set of interfaces to estimate the impact of playing computer games over a short period of time on players skills and abilities such as memory, reaction time and hand eye coordination. A review over other studies that have been conducted on the field with compares methodology and results is reported. The a set of 3 different systems is presented with the design of experimental protocols in order to validate such systems. Four subjects are selected at random, with all different ages and past computer game experience. These 4 subjects are all tested with the 3 proposed systems (i) before playing the computer games and (ii) after that. Results of suggest that playing computer games over a short period of time can slightly improve the reaction time and the short-term memory, as well as the hand eye coordination.
