Ever Wanted To Play Super Mario Bros. With A Banana?

Or a Play-Doh controller? Or doodles on a piece of paper?

This unbelievable Kickstarter, launched by two MIT grad students, promises to create an invention kit that lets you turn just about anything into an electronic input device. In the video, students play Dance Dance Revolution with water buckets and Pac-Man with a piece of paper. It's by far the coolest Kickstarter project I've seen to date.
