Video: Arduino-powered life size electronic snowball fight game (I can’t explain it)

Okay, just humor me and watch the video, please. It’s not like I get paid to describe things with… those… um, you know, the things that make stuff readable. With individual letters, etc. And periods, commas — the things in between those.

This here’s an interactive, outdoor electronic snowball fight comprised of two life size animated characters made from decorative Christmas lights. Two human players control each animated character, making them either duck or throw snowballs (also made from Christmas lights) at the other. You can’t duck and throw at the same time though.

If nobody’s around to play, the two characters will continue to lob snowballs at each other automatically. Say hello to the new coolest house in the neighborhood, all thanks to Arduino.
