Pong a multiplayer mobile game for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch: video

Ok so who ever said the Apple iPhone or Apple iPod Touch couldn’t be great games consoles? As the image below shows it is possible to play Pong with others on your Apple iPhone. All you need to do is install the software and off you go head to head with your buddies; it’s just like playing Air Hockey but only much cooler as Apple is involved.

It’s really cool to see what people can come up with, and especially when they use their smartphones for something they say you can’t do with.

Pong is a video game released originally as a coin-operated arcade game by Atari Inc, and is based on table tennis or ping pong, named because of the sound the ball makes when being hit. A couple of Japanese researchers developed this first gen ping pong video game for the Apple iPhone, and the balls travels from one Apple iPhone to the other via Wifi.

Yes there is actually a video of this game in action, although they are using Apple iPod Touch’s, probably because the Apple iPhone isn’t available in Japan, but obviously the same software used on the iPod Touch would work on an iPhone.

So watch the video below and be amazed, personally I think it is really clever, and of course if anyone actually gets hold of this software and plays pong be sure to let us know how it goes.
