Hyper Ping Pong game doesn't need a screen or a ball

The Hyper Ping Pong game is pretty unique in that you don't need a screen, ball or even an opponent to be able to play it. In fact all you really need is a specially designed paddle with a built-in motion sensor and speaker. You simply 'play' table tennis by listening to the fake ping pong ball sounds and then swing the paddle when the ball supposedly bounces on the table in front of you, which is what earns you points.

It's an interesting idea and the game itself is super practical as it can be played anywhere and doesn't require the player to have any other kind of equipment at the ready. However, it might get a little boring without any kind of visual stimulation and it's certainly not the most sociable game either!

Hyper Ping Pong is available in Japan this October for around $25.
