Massively Motion Controlled Breakout

Old King Lud IC mentions an interesting use of a crowd:

A marketing company hired by MSNBC tested this very question, putting a theatre full of people in front of a motion sensing camera. Their collective motions controlled the paddle of MSNBC's Newsbreaker, which is riddled with design problems in its capacity as a news delivery system, but a polished Breakout clone (originally designed by Woz). The result? A sort of tribal purity, energetic, and blissful in the aftermath.

I'll be posting a video of this once its approved by the Dubai ports authority.
