how to build a balance board with proximity sensor and arduino

Hey guys,
 So I am trying to figure out how to build a virtual balance board( using processing and Arduino), that responds to human weight when leaning left or right. An object would be falling in the screen on one side of the balance board and the person has to lean to the other side to keep the balance. 
I would like to use a proximity sensor to receive and send the data ( weight ) to Arduino. I may want to use spring board for enhancing the force.
So i need your help with the Arduino part, connections and coding,
I appreciate your help and guidelines.

Would that not be easier to achieve by using image recognition software on a web-cam, or hacking an x-box kinect?
