For their 20th anniversary the venerable German hacker group Chaos Computer Club has come up with a hack truly worthy of their pedigree: They have rigged the lights in each of the eighteen windows in the top eight floors of a house in Berlin to be under computer control, so the house can be used to display animation, and then (and here's what propels this into the legendary realm), they've rigged it so that you can play Pong on the house by dialing in with your cell phone and controlling the paddles with the buttons on your phone! Take a look at the animated GIF clip on the site -- it has to be seen to be believed.
