Connect Four Building

Hook up the Jardine's building in Hong Kong so that pedestrians can play Connect Four on it

Take this building: [link]

Add: Lighting and digital controls that are interfaced with "Connect Four" game boards on the sidewalk below.

And Viola! When a player drops his game piece into the board the corresponding lights on the building are lit to simulate the piece moving into place on the board. Windows remain lighted as long as the pieces are in place. Casual observers can see the game's progress on the side of the building (and bet on the outcome!)

       Haha, as soon as I read the title, I thought of this building - the house of a thousand arseholes!   

       Lovely idea, too.

       In the Jardine House...just as the contract is due to be signed, the lights go out, and a furious game of Connect 4 ensues in order to get the lights back on again long enough for the client to find his fountain pen..

       The representitive of the P.R.O.C. cracks wise about "men who can't find their 'fountain pen' in the dark with both hands." And, when the lights come back on, she finds that she's signed another 99 year lease.

       I'm in Hong Kong right now and saw the Jardine building, instantly reminding me of this HB idea, which, frankly, deserves a hootin' heck of a lot more buns.

       Wow, who boned this? This is hysterical. Is this the work of the auto-boner?
