The video shows a new type of video game, which we call Quantum Basketball. The game mimics real-world basketball, except that there is no visible ball. The ball is virtual and players learn about its position only from watching each other act and a small amount of occasional auditory feedback, e.g., when a person is receiving the ball.

The game maintains many of the properties of physical sports, such as unencumbered play, physical exertion, and immediate social interaction between players. At the same time, it allow introducing game elements from video games, such as power-ups, non-realistic physics, and player balancing. Most importantly, it creates a new game dynamic around the notion of the invisible ball. And it is living room safe... well, not quite.

Quantum Basketball is a research project at Hasso Plattner Institute.
