Philly Skyscraper Becomes a Gaming Display For Pong!

If you are like most people, you think that the larger your HDTV screen is, the better your graphics are for your video games. Before you go thinking that your humongous 80” is the best thing in the world and no one has it better than you, you may want to take a trip to Philadelphia and see what they have come up with over there.

The Cira Center in Philadephia, a 29-story skyscraper, will seize to be just a building on April 19th and April 24th. On those two days, the Cira Center will be doubling up as a screen for games of Pong.

How is this even possible? Thanks to hundreds of built-in LED lights apparently doing their magic. The lights will do their bit to replicate the familiar paddles and ball (oh those lovely 80s memories…) Frank Lee, a Drexel University game design professor, is the person who thought of this brilliant idea and has helped make it a reality.

Pong is scheduled to be played on the Cira Center on April 19th and April 24th, those dates being part of what is known as Philly Tech Week. This Pong event is five years in the making and looks like it will gone down as the most epic Pong game the world has ever known and will ever know!
