A real-life physical version of Atari's Pong game built by Daniel Perdomo. The coffee table concept of the popular game first released in 1972 has a curvy, retro feel and is played using rectangular paddles and a square ball bouncing back and forth to mimic the original video game. Perdomo and a group of friends took two years to develop the game which they built in their spare time using only information they gathered from YouTube videos, Google searches, and forum discussions.
I had the idea and I was talking with a few friends and decided to take on the challenge and see how far we could go, working at nights in our free time just for fun. We don’t have any electronics, product design or manufacturing background. All we knew about this was thanks to the internet (Google, YouTube, forums).
