NXT Soccer Controlled By Helmets

Name of Model: Crazy LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Soccer with Helmets - LEGO World 2011 (Copenhagen)

Details: Here's an interesting idea for making LEGO robots at events more interactive - giving people an NXT-enhanced helmet that can control a robot playing a soccer-style game. Third-party sensors (gyro and acceleration) are used to track head movements. Commands are derived from there and then sent (over bluetooth) to the robots on the field.

The most impressive part? This was all done in the graphical programming language that ships with the NXT - none of this was done with traditional text-based programming languages.
