StreetPong‘ is a concept about playful urban interactions developed by students Sandro Engel and Holger Michel from HAWK Hildesheim in Germany. The traffic lights game is attached to both sides of a pedestrian crossing so people can play while they’re waiting to cross the road. The screen shows how long the traffic lights will remain on green or red, as the colored meter slowly drains to the bottom. When the lights change to red, a person on either side of the road can play each other in a version of Pong. Check out the video below to see the game in action:
