FireHero Combines Dangerous Art with Video Games

Here is an odd use for Guitar Hero: as a control device for an interactive, flaming sculpture. Artist Chris Marion has done just that using a Guitar Hero guitar controller. Marion connected a a microcontroller to a Guitar Hero guitar and programmed the buttons to control five propane jets. The result is a fiery interactive sculpture he calls "FireHero."

Marion says that "the player simply watches a video of the Guitar Hero chart and plays on the guitar accordingly." Watch the video to the left to see it in action. via Joystiq
