Light Duel by Media Lab Melbourne< < Go back
Media Lab Melbourne were recently asked by the City of Melbourne to make an interactive arts installation for the 2016 Winter Festival at Fed Square that incorporates technology, community and fun.
What they designed is a fun project called Light Duel which can be described as a 2 player retro future, dual lane battle pong. You can challenge your friends to an interactive game that employs light as its medium. Two glowing strips serve as the battleground for a two person, pong-like game whereby each participant sends two light pucks flying at speed towards their opponent in the hope that they will miss their return volley. Employing dual arcade style buttons, players battle it out in a frenzy of electronic bleeps and neon computer controlled lighting!
