person playingSo…let’s image that you have an air hockey table…with no one else to play you. What do you do? These guys know. They made an air hockey table that allows you to play remotely with someone else. It was made to show that they were really bored and had a lot of networking skills. The air hockey table is just like a regular one except the other side is a screen with a live video feed of your opponent and a hidden (and seems to be very) complicated ejecting system.

There are sensors at the middle of the table that detect all the necessary components to air hockey (speed, angle, etc) and tells the launcher where to fire and how fast. Then you can play air hockey over the Internet. These guys were very bored.
