Pong Prom developed by Ed Keeble. It transforms the body into an interface to control the game of pong. Player don specially-designed hoodies and engage in a game of Pong by slow dancing with each other. It has an accelerometer attached at the back of the neck provides control of the game. You have to Rock back and forth moves the game paddle left and right.  An LED display on the front lets you see how the game is going.
"The project uses the Lilypad Arduino platform to control game play, run the display, and communicate between devices. Patches of conductive fabric on the shoulders, hips, and cuffs of the shirts are used to create a serial connection between the Arduinos. An accelerometer attached at the back of the neck allows each player to control their game paddle by rocking their partner back and forth."
