Street pong

Sandro Engel and Holger Michel, two students from HAWK University in Hildesheim, Germany, came up with the idea of doing an interaction design project, called Streetpong.

The concept started in a piece of paper, then applied in Photoshop and after that, programmed to be used in a smartphone. Some time later, they would apply this project in a real-time project. They thought these screens could be put to better use during their “do not walk” time, and invented a concept for them to become active screens for a quick game of Pong with a fellow pedestrian also waiting to cross on the other side. Touch-screen pedestrian crossing interfaces are pretty attractive things, and incredibly useful, showing the fading green time-frame in which you can cross the street safely, and a solid red when you can’t.
