Wonderball revolutionises Ping Pong at Bounce

Challenge
Social entertainment brand Bounce, wanted to create an entirely new experience using their Ping Pong tables combined with interactive projection.  

Solution
Projection Artworks, specialists in digital experiences, and Bounce launched Wonderball – the first digital evolution of the game Ping Pong.

The bespoke system was rolled out across two London locations, turning a standard Ping Pong table into an interactive game using projection mapping – revolutionising Ping Pong for London gamers.

Projection Artworks created a variety of games and interactive effects. Players can pick and choose the game they want to play by bouncing the ball on the projected menu. Games include a projected version of beer pong, a point scoring game, trailing digital effects to enhance normal game play and in Hit Machine the system counts rally lengths. The system then pinpoints the trajectory of a specifically developed ball and keeps score of the game.

The system is built in TouchDesigner, and projected from one Optoma ZU650 projector with added UV flood lights to illuminate the table. 

Bounce has patented the Wonderball tech which combines ball tracking technology and the latest in interactive projection mapping.

Result
The result is the ultimate immersive retro arcade gaming experience and a whole new way for groups to play - with very little skill needed.
