- 8 august 2013
A project by collaborative space Company Campus, the Balle de Match is a pong-inspired game projected on a clear billboard in Nantes, France.
Passersby can connect to the game using their smartphones and play by using their devices as controllers. Players can play against a computer or another player on the street.
Aside from paying homage to the classic game by bringing it back to life in a new way, the installation also turns ordinary street objects into something that people can interact with.
The larger-than-life version of the arcade game was installed as part of A Journey to Nantes, an event celebrating the appointment of Nantes as Green Capital of Europe.
