The Pong Dress, created by a pair of Austrian artists, smacks of something that their German-speaking bretheren at the Chaos Computer Club might concoct -- but the Vienna-based Ludic Society beat 'em to it. Max Moswitzer and Margarete Jahrmann combined a dress with a 5 x 7 inch screen to play a a game of Pong on the wearer's body. The joysticks are quite the coup de grâce, however: dueling old-skool NES controllers, plugged in at hip level. How do you keep track of the score, you ask? The scoreboard can be found chest-high. (Don't blame us, we didn't design it.) The dress is now on display at the Pong Mythos exhibition in Leipzig, Germany -- we assume with Moswitzer wearing a stuffed bra to go with it.
