5th Ave Frogger

Gizmodo.com highlights an updated version of the arcade classic, Frogger, with real time traffic on New York’s Fifth Avenue.  The creator, Tyler DeAngelo uses realtime footage from a webcam looking down at the street is processed, and the position and motion of the actual cars driving down Fifth Avenue is translated to the in-game vehicles. The hacked version of the game also provides a split-screen view showing the player how the traffic in the game matches the traffic on Fifth Avenue in real life. This year is Frogger’s 30 (ish) birthday. To celebrate, DeAngelo wanted to imagine what Frogger would be like if it was developed today.
