How To Recreate The Classic Pong Game Using Arduino

For the first time in history, the concept of a “video game” was brought into the family home, thanks to the Atari 2600 – so it’s only right that we pay a little homage to this historical gem. Now, you can re-live that (admittedly somewhat boring gameplay) using an Arduino and some common components. I won’t lie – it’s unlikely your daughter will be giving up her Nintendo DS, and this isn’t going to provide hours of fun for the whole family – but it is an awesome and easy project to improve your Arduino coding.

And if you’re just getting started, don’t forget to check out our beginner’s Arduino guide. We’ll make two basic controllers, and the video will output to your TV through a standard composite video cable. Requirements for Arduino Pong 470 ohm resistor x11k ohm resistor x110k ohm Potentiometer (twiddly variable resistor) x2Arduino x1 (any version)RCA plug x1 (if you have more than one, you can hook up sound too. How To Make a Simple Arduino Alarm System. Detect movement, then scare the heck out of an intruder with a high pitched alarm sounds and flashing lights.

Does that sound fun? Of course it does. That’s the goal of today’s Arduino project, suitable for beginners. Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Whittling Book. Error 403. Instructions - Crafteeo. Southern Guardian Helmet Build Northern Guardian Helmet Build The 3-Step Build Process There are three major steps to the build process: (1) Preparation: Punch out or cut out all the pieces then curl or fold them, (2) Build: assemble the cutout pieces into a helmet, sword or shield, and (3) Paint: decorate your helmet, sword or shield.

If this your first time building these projects, we suggest watching all the videos prior to attempting each step. Step 1: Preparation. Simple robots. This is an example of a writing robot Handwriting is quite a difficult task for robots, but children find the result interesting.

simple robots

This is a robot which carries a paper disc. The program is written round the edge of the disc with a black felt-tip, like a bar code. The disc is carried by the robot rather like music on a music stand, it bears on one of the robot's axles,which rotates it so that the code passes in front of a simple light pen. This works a relay which reverses the motor driving the other axle. This next one is similar, but uses an electronic memory to store the program which it scans by rotating once on the paper disc, there is a downwards-pointing light pen at the end.

I recommend printing the gears with an ink jet printer. Even cheap ink jet printers print very scale accurate but Not all laser printers are accurate. This is the new version (as of September 2015). You can still access the old Flash based version Getting the printout to scale correctly Different browsers print at different scales depending on browser type and printer configuration.

Ordinarily you need a DC motor with gearbox and an h-bridge or motor drivers. Lots of parts and assembly. So instead I’m going to use servos to drive the robot! I have Turnigy TG9e, 9g Analog Micro Servos which are compact and inexpensive. Ordinarily a servo can only turn 180 degrees. After this hack, the servo will run continuously instead of only within the 180 degrees.

It’s a fairly easy hack. Disassembling Turnigy TG9e Remove any servo wheel or arm, then remove the four long screws from the bottom. Output Gear Once you have the output gear off you can drill it so it will rotate on the pot shaft. Lock Pot (Option 1) This is the easiest way but you ruin the pot. Connect the servo to an Arduino. #include <Servo.h> Servo myservo; int pos = 0; void setup() { myservo.attach(9); } void loop() { myservo.write(90); } FullSolderComic_EN.pdf.
