It was dark: my phone's not a movie camera. Consequently, this is a little low on detail.

The solid circles are the 'footballs', and the larger hollow balls belong to each player. The IR camera tracks your hotspots (usually face and hands) and draws the circles onto the projection. This means you can push the footballs by rushing at them, throwing a punch or nudging with your bum. This version of the game keeps score of the football collisions with each side, adds a ball every ten goals and resets at fifty.

Different people are differently warm, and your ball control varies accordingly. The idea of this is to get people involved with the artwork: once you get used to rushing around, playing inside the screen, it's difficult to get people to stop.
