PING! Augmented Pixel

July 5th, 2011

“PING! Augmented Pixel” is Niklas Roy‘s latest project.

“PING! – Augmented Pixel” is a seventies style video game, that adds a layer of digital information and old-school aesthetics to a video signal: A classic rectangular video game ball moves across a video image. Whenever the ball hits something dark, it bounces off. The game itself has no rules and no goal.

You could say that it’s just an augmented reality version of Pong. But Niklas just did a little more than just that. PING! – Augmented Pixel doesn’t use a computer to process the video signal and display the game. Niklas made a read hardware box with its own micro-controller. Impressive work!

    Here an augmented reality version of Pong where the ball more or less forces you to stay aligned: EgoPong.
