Smart Cars Play Ping Pong

Ping-pong is not just a sport, it’s also a force of innovation (see Pong in gaming, for example). And now, this might be one of the coolest displays of that we’ve seen yet. Smart-cars-ping-pong

This is a pretty cool publicity stunt by BBDO, who turned two cars into video game controllers to play ping-pong. The campaign is appropriately called  “Smart eBall”. The whole point of the campaign is to show how the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive has an excellent acceleration,on a level that competes with any regular car.

In order to move the car on the display, the driver had to accelerate back and forth in real life. The event took place in Frankfurt, and users were allowed to drive the cars themselves and play. The stunt turned out to be a huge success as it drew in 520,000 spectators. See the event taking place in the video below.

Thanks to everyone at Trendhunter for the lead. See more cool cars at Urbee: the World’s First 3D-Printed Car and 14 Crazy Steampunk Car Mods.
