Play Pong at the Stoplight!

Do you dislike waiting a long time before the traffic light turns green? Well in Germany they found a solution of some kind.. Street Pong! Sandro Engel and Holger Michel are interaction design students at HAWK University, a college in Hildesheim, Germany. They wanted to discourage people from running across busy streets. So they found a way to make waiting at a traffic light fun, rather than annoying. Their solution was to build a simple video game into a traffic light. Engel and Michel call the game STREETPONG. It only works when the crosswalk light is red.
