To celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Atari Pong game, its creators have unveiled a new limited edition Atari Pong speaker hat which is now available to order priced at $130 and Atari Pong Table. As you can see from the images above and below on the front of the hat is the Pong logo and on the rear the date Atari change the world as we know it. Equipped with high-fidelity stereo speakers, microphone and Bluetooth connectivity the Atari Pong baseball cap allows you to connect to your smartphone to enjoy music, make voice calls or even use voice control applications from your mobile phone. Atari Connect COO, Michael Arzt explains more:
Atari Speakerhats resonate with fans both new and old, and this new Pong design is something that people have been asking for. Atari’s social pages have been filled with love and accolades for the Speakerhats, and also with requests for designs based on our classic game franchises. We expect that unveiling the Pong Anniversary Limited-Edition Speakerhat on ‘Pong Day’ will make a lot of dedicated Atari fans and lovers of retro pop-culture very happy.
The Pong Anniversary Limited-Edition Speakerhat, like all Atari Speakerhats, is precision-engineered to the highest audio standards to deliver a unique and powerful experience to a range of active consumers, including gamers and streamers, outdoor and fitness enthusiasts, skaters, musicians, sports fans, tech early-adopters and many others who want to escape the isolation of headphones or burden of carrying a portable speaker. Each Speakerhat is powered by patented Audiowear technology.
As well as the awesome Atari Pong baseball cap an oversized Atari Pong Table game embedded in a coffee table has also been created, which contains no screens or digital software and allows players to enjoy the game created in three dimensions with motor ails, pulleys and magnets to perfectly simulate the game’s familiar 2D movements. Unfortunate no information on pricing has been released as yet but the Atari Pong Table is expected to be launched via Kickstarter and creator Calinfer expects the Table Pong coffee table to be available in the first quarter of 2018.
