De Pong Game
De Pong Game is a recycling of the famous game PONG [Atari 1975-1977]. This new version has been built with Flash [Action Script] by Arjan Westerdiep for (я) | Recyclism. This project explores the concept of Augmented Reality by interacting with urban architectures [buildings], which are used as backgrounds for the game. The game is projected on the face of a building; the features of that building become the limits of the game area. The ball projected on the building bounces along the limits of the walls, and the windows and other features are programmed in as obstacles. As the ball is touched with the slider, its speed increases; as the ball bounces off all the obstacles of the architecture, it becomes increasingly difficult to play. The first version of de Pong Game was created and tested in the streets of Groningen in 2003.
