"Pingtime is a table tennis concept that captivates the players in an augmented reality world, where surfaces bend and fluorescent balls send ripples of electricity. Developed by Sergiu Doroftei, Bogdan Susma, Ion Cotenescu, and Silviu Badea for Rokolectiv, an arts and electronic music festival that takes place every spring in Bucharest, Romania, the table features a surface that visually reacts to the match in real-time. As the players become more immersed in the game, Pingtime examines whether computer animations are challenging their reaction speed."
