Xbox Kinect Ping-Pong … for Charity

Aol, foursquare, Hunch, Thrillist, TechStars, Yipit, and The New York Times are set to do battle — in Xbox Kinect ping-pong as part of BackSpin 2011, a charity event organized by Techies Give Back and The Daily editor of apps, games, and technology Peter Ha, to be held Saturday, Feb. 26, at General Assembly in New York.

The event will benefit nonprofit Child’s Play, which provides books, games, and consoles to children in hospitals. There will also be an all-star squad featuring Naveen from foursquare, David Tisch from TechStars NYC, Gawker’s Richard Blakeley, and NY Tech Meetup’s Nate Westheimer, and the MCs for BackSpin 2011 will be Jeff & Pat from CollegeHumor’s Bleep Bloop.

Tickets will be available starting Wednesday, at $50 to enter the singles tournament or $25 to attend as a fan.
