Butterfly Buzz: A Tour of the PingPod Facility

(by Steve Hopkins)

During a recent interview with Ernesto Jon Ebuen, we were provided a walk-through of the new PingPod facility in New York City.  We thought this might make a nice feature on its own, so we have provided a longer version of the tour here.

The new facility features custom tables, two walls of glass which allow those outside to watch, lockers, and refreshments.  The concept is playing areas in high traffic, easily accessible locations that operate autonomously.  You sign up to play through an app, that same app opens the door when you arrive.  You can also use the app to purchase drinks or send reminders to your playing partners or to access videos of you playing.

Its high tech.  Its fun.  And its a new take on a table tennis facility that brings the tables to where the consumers work and live.  Keep an eye out – a PingPod may be coming to your city soon.

If you missed the full interview, you can access Ernesto Jon Ebuen on PongNow here.
