After some research I discovered that you can read the speed of a Powerball with a sensor. By connecting this sensor to the Arduino (and a hacked usb-keyboard) it is possible to use the rotationspeed of the powerball on your computer.I developed this game as part of my graduation project which was titled 'Physical Computing with Arduino'.

The game is called Gyro (a two player Flash game) that is controlled by two Powerballs, the harder you spin the Powerball the higher the space ship goes.

It's not really advanced programming stuff, but i'm pleased with the result as it is a prototype and works quite well.
