PONG Console

The game that everyone is talking about!

Constructed from a Vellemam MK121PAL kit, following the stock design just to prove that it worked, then added my own little mods to it.

Mounted the PCB in a project box, and drilled/cut out all the holes for the buttons and I/O. I also mounted the PCB upside down, so that the battery compartment would be accessible, without removing the whole board. Also flipped the 1K potentiometer to the other side as well, which adjusts the brightness.

I added some other connectors fro the analogue audio and video (BNC for the video and balanced XLR for the audio) a 2 way switch, to select whether to the run the unit on it's internal battery power of 3xAA or from an external source (3-5V)

To actually control the game, I routed all the connection to buttons mounted on the top of the case

As I used a standard DSUB-9 connector between the board and the buttons, it would be possible in the future to expand the project to use other methods of input, such as maybe using a floor matt.

This guy adapted his controller into using a balance board
