Pigeons Playing Ping Pong [video]

BF Skinner trains two pigeons to perform a chain of behaviors for the classroom demonstration. As a result, pigeons engage in a competition, the so-called "pigeon Ping Pong". Narrated by B.F. Skinner.

Nice find. I heard about this experiment in class, and spent quite a bit trying to find a video (unsuccessfully).

Wasn't Pong invented after this video?
