A few months ago, Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories made a 1st generation mechanical version of the classic video game Pong. The results were impressive, but the gaming was slow and lackluster. An impressive iteration later and the new Tabletop Pong game was premiered at the Maker Faire. The new concept has a curved playing field so the ball doesn’t get stuck in the center. This slows the game down a bit, but it keeps the momentum going. I wish I had been there to play it.
