There are few things more annoying, in our modern world, than having to stand at the side of a busy road waiting for a green man. They say a watched pot never boils. Well a watched traffic light never turns green.

We should expect to be entertained in these wasted moments of our lives. So two students in Germany have come up with an ingenious solution to the problem, called StreetPong. Using the actual wait button at the crossing, StreetPong pits pedestrians against their bored counterparts on the other side of the street in a simple game of Pong – seeing who can rack up the most points before the light turns green. Not to be missed. [Watch].

We’ll be surprised if we see many of these make it to production, but it’s good fun – and councils have spent money on stranger things…
