The idea came from two university students, prototypes were installed last month.

German traffic lights have been fitted with actual Pong games for pedestrians to play while they wait. The games are played between pedestrians on opposite sides of the street. 

Still in the development phase, “StreetPong” promises to hail “a new generation of traffic light buttons”. Instead of showing "wait" or other images typically shown at cross walks, this device lets users to play the classic arcade game. 

It looks like the "waiting game" could be a hit with more than five million views of the video above.
