"Bouncing Star" rubber ball

As more and more developers work towards melding games and electronics, we're bound to see many more projects like this Bouncing Star which was presented at SIGGAPH 2008. In some ways it kind of reminds me of the Lacoste video and FiiWa we mentioned earlier. It looks like the accelerometer in the ball senses movement/acceleration and changes color and the ball can be played on it's own or with an interactive floor. Using the IR sensors to interact with the "digital court" with motion graphics or other interactive functions. Let the Night Games Begin!
