Handheld Pong Console

21. January 2016

As a finals project in electrical engineering class, we had to come up with a way for passengers to pass the time in the public commute in Central Copenhagen. The solution that my group (which consisted of one other person besides me) came up with, was to install simple Pong-consoles.

We therefore constructed, designed, programmed and build our very own Pong console entirely from scratch. It’s designed around the ATmega328 microcontroller and utilizes a 555-timer chip set up in a astable multivibrator setup to produce square wave sounds. See the machine in action:
