Play Pong While You Wait for the Traffic Light to Turn Green

Some walk lights have buttons you can press to let the system know that there are pedestrians waiting to cross, while some others have a Pong game unit instead.

Too bad you can only find the latter in Germany.

Pedestrian Crossing LightsApparently someone thought that pedestrians needed some entertainment while they wait for the lights to turn red. That entertainment came in the form of Street Pong. These basically allow pedestrians on opposite sides of the street to play pong while the cars go zooming past.

The cool thing is that there’s actually a timer which counts down just how much playing time you have left before it’s time to cross the street.

Awesome stuff. Now if we can only get these everywhere.
