2,400 LED Pong table for gaming & dining
Pong has taken many strange twists and turns through our culture since the 70s and has somehow endured, despite it’s simple nature. Well, it’s back again and this time the game takes place on a table, allowing you to play and then dine. Or dine and then play a game for dessert. It’s from the mind of Moritz Waldemeyer. The table uses 2400 LEDs for display and has 2 trackpads.

Turned on, the trackpads let users control the paddles. Turn it off and it’s just a plain table again. It was part of MOMA’s Elastic Mind exhibit. I for one would love to see it go into production, but somehow I doubt it will. For one thing, it would force you to clear the table everytime you want a game and that’s just a bit too much if you love Pong and dining.

Mind blowing chair sends images to brain via skin

Mind blowing chair is creepyThe Mind Chair will blow your mind if the product description is accurate and can be believed. It uses sensory substitution techniques that enable the sitter to see moving images right in their brain. The nerves in the skin are the mode of transport. Cool and yet very very creepy. Just sit somebody down in this thing and you could interrogate them as if you had just pumped them full of psychotropic drugs.

The Mind Chair will be made available to curious onlookers at the MoMA in New York as part of the Design and the Electric Mind exhibition. Problem is, like a scene from some Phillip K. Dick novel, did you experience what you thought you did? Or in reality did they sit you down in that chair and brainwash you? I suppose you’ll never know. Sucks to be you. I’m staying away from the chair, thank you.
