Fancy a game of pong? Invention allows strangers at crossings to play game

Ever get bored waiting for the lights to change so you can cross safely?

A team of design students have created something that will make you wish the wait was even longer.

Their brilliant invention, which went viral in 2012 is a crosswalk button that allows strangers to play pong with one another while they wait for the light to change, from different parts of the road.

Amelie Künzler, Sandro Angel, and Holger Michel, the three design students at HAWK university, are the brains behind the invention.

They had it installed publicly in the German city of Hildesheim just a couple of weeks ago.

The idea for their Actiwait button went viral after the students published their concept video in 2012.

After overcoming numerous technological challenges and lots of bureaucratic red tape, a test unit has been installed at a crosswalk in Hildesheim in front of HAWK University.

Watch the Actiwait in action on the streets of Germany:
