Social entertainment brand Bounce, wanted to create an entirely new experience using their Ping Pong tables combined with interactive projection. Projection Artworks, specialists in digital experiences, and Bounce launched Wonderball – the first digital evolution of the game Ping Pong.
Idzard Kwadijk was hired as TouchDesigner consultant during the development phase to optimize the software. Ping Pong is a very fast game – so the custom made tracking & projection system needed to be even faster!
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. Wonderball has 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. A bespoke variety of games and interactive effects are projected onto a Ping Pong board with added UV flood lights to illuminate the table. The system then pinpoints the trajectory of a specifically developed ball and keeps score of the game. The games are multi-player, multi-level, and range in skill level.
An immersive experience that makes people say “wow”. Shared and used by thousands in London and millions online.
