Accelerometer controlled pong

pong

[Adam] sent us this cool game he made. It is accelerometer controlled pong (translated). The screen is a Nokia 3310 LCD, tied to an ATmega8 for the brains. He’s using an MMA7260 accelerometer for the controls. The whole thing is encased in an iPod nano box. this looks like a pretty fun little game, though we’d like to see someone attempt a two player match with it.

    It must be really easy considering the paddles are 1/2 the size of the screen edge.

    Smaller paddles = More fun

    This gives me a related idea! Put something like that into the remote of the original pong :).

    Bigger paddles, buttons and RTC are on the way, these one are there because I used text-mode library :-)
