PONG : – Electronics Australia, May 1976

Page38
Ok gang, one more DIY Pong project – “The system plays a two players game which can be varied in several ways. The most common variant is the inversion of one of the paddles, giving a vertical line with a hole. Then, the system can let a paddle (or hole) wobble to make the games more difficult. Then, it is possible to add an “interraction” so that when a player moves his paddle or hole, the other player’s paddle or hole moves a little. By combining these options, a total of 32 variants can be obtained, and this does not include the extra variants made by placing one or two holes at specific locations. Here again, this article shows how it is possible to make “variable” games using a few chips.”Link.

  1. Seems like A LOT of work to go through. I have this EXACT same mount, and it mounts to pretty much anything except surfaces with pretty extreme curves(like if he was trying to mount it about 3 inches to the left, It would not work). Where he has it mounted it would stick perfectly, and as for leveling it out the mount has 3 degrees of movement in the z arm and a rotation in the GPS mount part.

    Still a cool project to teach yourself how to cast.

  2. It was a lot of work to go through, but the dash really is that curved, and the tape wouldn’t fill in that space adequately (actually, not at all. It kept falling off). I also initially tried a little acoustic foam pad as an interface, but that didn’t have enough structural integrity (read: it wobbled a lot), and eventually that fell off, too.

    It maybe would have worked w/o the wedge if I’d moved it back about five inches, but then it’s too far away to see clearly.

  4. I own the same exact GPS (I love it to death) and had similiar problems with the mount in my curvy ’97 thunderbird. It seems the mount will only stick in cars that are flat in design- haven’t seen any new models that do that so I find it odd they packaged it the way they did. At first I used very sticky thick double sided black tape to get it attached to the dashboard but that died out this summer when the extreme heat quickly metled the glue on the tape. Whenever the GPS device was in the mount since it was at angle due to the curve the device was pulling it off. Now I’m using strong velco and HIGHLY recommend it- plus it’s aesthetically pleasing.
