The Amazing Homemade Pong Watch

This amazing Pong watch is truly homemade. The creator, John Maushammer, even made the casing and fabricated the board – watch the video to see the project in progress.

Maushammer says: ‘I succeeded in compressing all the electronics for this watch in to a 10mm-thick case. The 96×64 OLED display runs continuously – unlike older LED watches, there is no need to press a button to see the time. Battery life is 25 hours, so recharging is done every night.

And to top it off – Maushammer has made a second version which plays Asteroids controlled with a tilt sensor: ‘Usually, the computer plays automatically & it keeps time. But, it also has a tilt-sensor so you can aim the ship by moving your wrist around.’

Before you ask, sadly it doesn’t look like either of these watches are available to buy – but we can hope. It’s lucky there are plenty of other retrogaming watches to keep us occupied in the meantime!
