Put a net across an air hockey table and play ping pong on it. Or try to... I looked on Google and didn't find anything even close.

       Hmmmm. It would at least be an interesting expiriment the first time. Might not have much potential after that though.

       I'm trying to picture the effect, and I think it would mostly result in very dead bounces. Having random air jets on the table, however, could be interesting.

       I was thinking a good spin might have some interesting effects in the flowing air. And of course, there would be "hotspots" between the nozzles where a good spike might be given a nice boost on its way up.

       It occurs to me that you want to take a game with a green table and replace the table with one that uses electricity. Would it be solar powered so it's still green?

       It would be powered by gerbils and hamsters. The tiny AC units that keep them cool would be solar powered.
