If you find yourself on the streets of Hildesheim Germany you might be pleasantly surprised to be suddenly pitted against another pedestrian in a game of pong.

 Play Pong While Waiting for the Light to Change

A student at the HAWK Interaction Design Program discovered the touchpad-based game affixed to lamp posts. While waiting to cross the street, the user can play a quick game of Pong with someone across the street while waiting for the light to turn green. Then you can greet your opponent with a smile or a high five as you cross each other

EDIT: This video has been revealed to be altered in post-production with motion-capture tools. It is not a real product but simply a concept video. Apologies for any confusion.
