Not to be out done, this year the Trondheim Maker Faire organisers have seriously raised the bar. Building on, and vastly scaling up, their bus stop hack they’ve taken over the huge, building sized, screens on all four sides of the Rockheim Museum — the city’s museum of rock music — and installed the classic Atari game of Pong, the first computer game ever invented, onto the huge screens.
Their plan? That people can stand in the Skybar of a neighbouring hotel, and play Pong on the on the museum building. They’re also hoping to stream live video directly onto the screens all throughout the faire itself.
