We've seen plenty of unique livestreams on Twitch this year, including the original "Twitch Plays Pokemon" -- but "Fish Plays Street Fighter" is really something special.

A camera captures where a couple of fish move in a tank, and converts their positions into moves in a game of Street Fighter II, allowing the fish to battle each other in the game.

This isn't the first time fish have played a game on Twitch -- most recently "Fish Plays Pokemon" showed it was possible -- but "Fish Plays Street Fighter" is arguably the best use of the concept yet.

One question: Can the fish see the results? Perhaps after a while they'd recognize the patterns and start kicking major ass. I'd like to see what happens when they play Shark Shark or Darius Twin.
