Evil Mad Scientist remaked Pong on the Oscilloscope

The Evil Mad Scientist hits the street again. They made a great remake form the first "video"game, that was ever made. It's Tennis for Two, a precursor of the game that almost 20 years later got famous under the name Pong. It originally was - well... - "programmed" on an oscilloscope by an engineer, to show off something cool. And so the Evil Mad Scientist did.

What did they use? They used an oscilloscope, an AVR microcontroller and a digital to analog converter.

Using convenient modern electronics, we have designed a functional and playable replica of the original that can be put together by a hobbyist in a couple of evenings.

Oh, you can see the love and the passion in their design.
