How’s this for an air hockey table?

What would you do if you had a 103″ plasma screen laying around? Why turn it into a touch screen air hockey game of course! At least that’s what they did in Amsterdam for ISE 2009, by combining a Panasonic 103″ plasma TV with something called the U-Touch overlay by uicentric. It would be cool to see this in an arcade although if it were me it would be under pretty strict rules and cost a bit more than regular air hockey to make sure that no one mucks with it the same way they mess with my air hockey table at times.

Then again, it’d be far less of a hassle (and less expensive) just to have a real air hockey table. 😛

    I already seen a thing like this when visiting Panasonic showroom in Tokyo one year ago…

    Sure, it would be damaged pretty quickly in US or Europe arcades…
