Some things never get old, and collaborators UNIS and Calinfer realized that thanks to the massive reception their PONG Table received at IAAPA this year! The two companies are now eyeing the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) as the next event to make an impact at. CES, held Jan. 9-12 in Las Vegas, is the biggest consumer tech event of the year, bringing thousands to Sin City for days of the most innovative tech presentations.
On top of inspired, nostalgic appeal, the PONG Table is innovative indeed. Taking the classic ball-and-paddle idea of the original game, Calinfer and UNIS transformed pixels into physical blocks – there are no screens or digital software involved! Using motors, rails, pulleys and magnets, trackers underneath the table sense the movement of the physical ball and paddles.
The current version of the game is focused toward the home crowd, allowing for the game’s controls to be hidden (transforming it into a coffee table of sorts) as well as offering a clock display, USB charging ports and Bluetooth music streaming.
The companies will be exhibiting the table at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall Two, booth #25949.
