Being inspired by the videos of a Japanese TV show called Human Tetris (available via youtube), we (Martin Davidsson and me) created a computer game version, so everyone around the world could join the fun! To see what the game is like, watch this demo movie:
For those of you, who are interested in the technology behind, we use a webcam and use adaptive background subtraction, to figure out which pixel is part of the silhouette and which is not. This worked astonishing well, but for some colors that were very much alike the background. If you want to play a round yourself, code is available at Google code, or if you want to save yourself the trouble of compiling, contact me for binaries!
