Creative Applications showcases the Di-Dah-Dit, a telepresence device that allows two distant users to play a physical game together, with the actions of one user replayed remotely on the device of the other. Di-Dah-Dit is the brainchild of Camille Morizot.

Under the hood an Arduino board controls the movement of the virtual player. A single servo manipulates the spacing between the bars keeping the ball always in motion. LEDs on the top face of the device act as visual communicators both inviting players to the game and as a signal where to position the ball at the start of the game. The notion of telepresence is maintained throughout the play with the help of movement and visual feedback. Two devices are required to play, one at each location.
