German Pedestrians Can Now Play Street Pong While They Wait To Cross The Street
After their ingenious idea went viral back in 2012, a team of creative design students have finally realized their concept for an electronic crosswalk button fitted with an electronic pong game. Now, pedestrians in Hildesheim, Germany can use the time they spend while waiting for the green light to play pong against each other!
Streetpong (also known as Actiwait) was created by Amelie Künzler, Sandro Angel, and Holger Michel, three interactive design students at HAWK University. The game now entertains pedestrians in Hildesheim (Google Maps), but we sure hope the brilliant invention will spread throughout Germany and other parts of the world as well.
