Fun and Function on a Street Corner in Germany

Posted by

European transportation planners have a somewhat different view on the extent pedestrians should interact with traffic controls. Here is a video from Germany demonstrating how a Pong game has been incorporated into the controls of a traffic light to allow people waiting for the signal on opposite sides of the street play with each other. It’s brilliant because not only does it entertain a captive audience, it offers the potential for opponents to meet each other and make new friends.
