Utilizing freestyle footballers, a hacking experiment features wall-mounted Guitar Hero controls placed in front of a three-story screen. Soccer balls kicked at the life-size panels provide the physical interface for the game within the game.

Based on recent trends, it appears that Guitar Hero is everyone's favorite platform to experiment on these days. Fast on the heels of the University of Washington's muscle memory based interface, we came across this large-scale hack created as part of rock band Kasabian's upcoming album release. Utilizing freestyle footballers from Woody & Kleiny, the promotion features wall-mounted controls placed in front of a three-story screen. Soccer balls kicked at the life-size panels provide the physical interface for the game within the game. The end result is an impressive (and somewhat chaotic) display of skill and innovative rethink of the Guitar Hero platform.
