Create a mini Pong arcade game with Arduino

There's a few implementations of the classic "Pong" video game, however we haven't seen one as true to the original as the example by Instructables member harty123. They've hacked a miniature arcade cabinet into an Arduino-based gaming console by using an inexpensive graphic LCD and a barebones Arduino-compatible circuit. Furthermore the existing game controls can be used which results with a miniature rendition of a cabinet - as shown in the following video:

Recreating this isn't that difficult, and full details can be found in the project Instructable page. And for more, we're on facebooktwitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

If you're wanting to make your own Arduino Uno-compatible projects without the usual board, you'll need an ATmega328P MCUs with Arduino Uno bootloader:

This is the same Atmel AVR ATmega328P microcontroller used in the official Arduino Uno, as well as our ElevenEtherTenUSBDroid, and other boards. Perfect for building your own Arduino-compatible project directly on a breadboard or on a custom PCB, or for replacing the MCU in an existing board. Comes with the Arduino Uno bootloader pre-installed. Better still, it even has a special label stuck on top with details of the pinout, so you don't even need to look up the datasheet when connecting it up in your project!
