About PingPong++

PingPongPlusPlus builds on the PingPongPlus (1998), a ping pong table that sensed ball hit locations and displayed projected visualizations based on the hits. We are setting up a system of distributed ping pong tables that records the history of hits in a centralized database. From these records, we are exploring ways to remix past games and present games to teach, inform, and entertain.
