Aka StreetPong has recently been rolled out in German towns Hildesheim and Oberhausen. It’s a simple game played by 2 people (1 at each side of the street) on the button controls of the pedestrian lights.
Designers Amelie Kunzler and Sandro Engel are behind this cool urban street game and their website it located here.
“In a world where cities grow of population you`ll have most encounters in the urban place.
Because of the population growth this place is becoming more and more anonymous, impersonal and more functional.
We are questioning the everyday life, analyzing the circumstances and want to find a playful solution to improve the awareness of life.
We want to reinvent the urban place by bringing back fun and personality.
We invent the urban place.”
Have a great start to the week!
