John-Graham-Cuming has been working on Arduino based video game. His final design fits nicely in to candy can which serve as reliable and freely accessible enclosure. It has everything what needs a rel TV game – paddle control, fire button, video output and audio output.
The game wouldn’t be fun if there weren’t second controller for one more player. So extension controller, which serves as simple joystick, can be attached to same looking main controller can that also works as joystick. The PAL video signal is generated by using a TVout library. With minor code changes there can also be NTSC variant. The Arduino code already is already set up for well known Pong game. So beware – it’s addictive.
