TV Gets Emotionally Reactive - Instant Physical Feedback

Remember those alarm clocks that to silence you had to throw against a wall?  Remember how good it felt to take your early-morning-I-don't-want-to-go-to-work-please-don't-make-me-mommy aggression out on an annoying, screeching gizmo?  Well, this new art-project, HiTV, should appeal to you.  It's an "affective interaction and feedback interface" for your TV, which when translated comes out as "throw a big sponge ball at the screen when you're pissed off at what's on".  Make sure you check out the video after the cut...

When the ball hits the screen, the picture shakes and deteriorates and the character currently shown screams.  I don't know if it then learns what you do and don't like, showing you more of the former and less of the latter, but I suppose there's some entertainment mileage in physically expressing your displeasure at whatever the latest political decision to raise your ire might be.
