Maybe this is not the most applicable bit of tech for South Africa considering that we have the most impatient and suicidal pedestrians in the entire world, but I thought it was cool enough for a mention nonetheless. StreetPong is an awesome little concept based around creating playful urban interactions, developed by students Sandro Engel and Holger Michel from HAWK Hildesheim in Germany.
Streetpong is an adapted version of the original Pong that can be played by two randoms on opposite sides of the street while they wait for the robots to change. Cool bit of tech that we might get to once we’ve sorted out sanitation and electricity for all SA residents *hopes*. Check out the video below to see how the game works.
