The Concept

The game is designed to be extensible and applicable to a variety of settings. The game of Pong is widely known and familiar to children and adults alike.

Players control the game by stepping on a pressure sensitive mat, which contains flex sensors that are used to sense pressure and move the paddles on screen accordingly. The game encourages children to move, run and jump as a part of the game play. In fact, all the interaction in the game happens in the form of body movements and pressure.
