Students at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program weren't trying to make video games when they found ways to use a rocking chair or two buckets full of water as controllers.

They didn't make games. They made tech art that I want to play.

While I scoffed at the inflatable rubber boat that I recently used to "help" myself control an Xbox 360 game, I cheer the experiments here. These look like fun projects, which I'd happily paddle and rock through.
