Be The Goalie

Be The Goalie is a riotous mashup of table football and camera-based motion detection, pitting life sized agility against pure foosball skills. The result is a game that gets people grinning, shouting and moving!

You, the goalies, act out the role of your rod-stricken counterparts and try to save your opponents’ blistering shots on goal. Assembled from a mixture of gaming equipment and DIY electronics, cameras detect the life sized goalies’ desperate movements, a little computer code turns this information into motor instructions, and the tabletop goalies move their few inches accordingly. The result is a no holds barred, against the clock battle for four players. No spinning!

After a furious game of table football come and learn the code behind the game and make your own body controlled interactive installation.
