Atari, working in collaboration with UNIS Technology, Ltd. is bringing back its 1970s arcade classic PONG. This tabletop gaming system has a 7.9″ LCD panel and offers both classic 2-player mode, and 1-player vs. AI mode. It runs on USB power or AAA batteries and is shipping in limited quantities now.
Back in the 1970s, Pong was all the rage. But for those who didn’t have a spare TV to play the game on, there were handheld knock-offs like Blip. YouTube channel Tech Tangents takes a look at this unusual piece of gaming history, and shows off its clever mechanical innards.
Instructables member oliverb made an Arduino-powered digital clock that has a fun mode. It can tell the time by playing Pong with itself, updating the score to accurately reflect the time. It can also show the time in large digits or with words. Learn how to make one here.
