I love love love these neat projects as they showcase how technology can get us moving again - plus Pong is such a universally known and loved game. In Pong Prom, you hold your partner in the typical "closed" formation however at each contact point there is conductive fabric which completes an Arduino circuit. While you look at your partner's chest, tilt your partner to one side or the other (like normal Pong) and the accelerometer at the back of the neck detects the side to side motion and adjust the paddle accordingly. I like how this Dept. of Covert Athletics is thinking and I wish there were more groups and projects to work with. Dance on my friends! Flickr stream for Pong Prom
