Click Picks: Super-sized Game of Pong


If you can remember the beginning of video games, you might think of the game “Pong”.

It is about to come back to life in a big way in the City of Brotherly Love.

Philadelphia is planning to allow gamers to use giant, table-mounted joysticks, standing at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, to play the game of paddles and ball as it’s displayed on the side of a 29-story skyscraper.

You can read about it here.

About 150 gamers will be allowed to play, most of them chosen by lottery.

It’s part of a technology workshop on April 19th through April 24th.
