And by the big leagues, we mean a bigger-than-life Guitar Hero-esque game being played on a massive megatron wall sized screen. The Kasabian football players kick the soccer ball at their colored square as the Arduino-controlled contact sensors are illuminated by falling colored blocks. The resulting game is both severely awesome and ridonkulous. Check out the video after the jump.

“Cognitive” Business Cards

Any DIYer worthy of the title should know about Lady Ada aka Limor Fried. She’s the ultimate maker and when I ran into her last week at a Gawker party, she brought along an Arduino-based robot she was working on.
