Pong is Reborn with 8-Person Multiplayer

Art group SuperUber, which seeks to combine technology and art, rolled out a new exhibit which focuses on the simplicity of Pong matched with the joy and interaction of multiplayer.

Superpong gives each player a dial which controls a row of paddles. The ball then travels between the rows. This is fairly simple but would obviously get pretty competitive.

This raises an interesting question. With the resurgence of popular retro games and the growth of arcade-style bars, could we see a rebirth of the arcade scene based around simple game concepts that focus on interaction?
