StreetPong - 2012
StreetPong is a concept about playful urban interactions. The starting point was the problem of waiting for a long time at pedestrian traffic lights. StreetPong can be played during the red phase at traffic light on a touchscreen display. The opponent can be anyone on the other side of the street who is also waiting to cross the street. The game itself is based on the classic arcade game 'Pong' published in 1972. Due to its high popularity this game is very well suited to be understood and played in a short period of time. Looking at each other across the street and engaging in a game creates contact. Thus StreetPong provides a platform for communication and interaction among people of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
