Arduino developers, tinkerers and hobbyists looking for a new project for the weekend might be interested in this tiny Pong Arcade game which has been constructed based on the Gamebunio Arduino platform.
The Pong Arcade game is equipped with a ATMEGA328 and the screen of the game has been provided by a Nokia 5110 LCD. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the tiny Pong Arcade Game project and see it in action.
The Pong Arcade game measures just 14cm tall and the circuit diagram is based on the open source handheld Gamebunio that recently successfully launched over on the Indiegogo website, which in itself is based on the Arduino platform. Its creator explains a little more about the design of the Duinocade.
“I’ve hacked not only the Gamebuino but also an Arcadie Dual gamedock for the case. It is much smaller als the Arcadie gamedocks of my other projects and also cheaper. The electronic is realized on a breadboard. In the future we will create a pcb layout and perhaps also a DIY kit.
In contrast to the Gamebuino we don’t have an lithium battery and an USB port. The Duinocade is powered by an external (wall) power supply. The electronic fits in the slot for the iPhone. We don’t have to made mechanical modifications of the case exept one additional hole for the power socket. We’ve mounted only an 3,3V power supply, the ATMEGA328 microcontroller, SD card socket and the Nokia LCD on this breadboard.”
