Are you old enough to remember 80s arcade games? Well if you are then Frogger was probably one of them – a game where you helped frogs cross a busy road while avoiding all the cars and obstacles inbetween. Recently Tyler DeAngelo hacked this version of the game in New York except this time the traffic you dodged was on 5th Avenue and in real time.
He refitted an arcade cabinet that uses actual real time traffic as the obstructions you have to dodge by setting up a webcam and writing code that translated the real-time moving traffic into live streaming data mapped onto the game’s graphics. It’s cool
