Retro Arcade Game Kit
Haynes Retro Arcade Game Kit has everything you need to build your own Pong machine. Not that kind.
Handheld games used to be all the rage. Actually, go back further. Arcade games used to be all the rage, then handhelds, then smartphones came along and hoovered up the market. Cue dead-Pac-Man wob-wob-wobs.
Still, there’s hope for button twiddlers yet in the form of the Haynes Retro Arcade Game Kit. Part retro arcade classic, part Raspberry Pi, this collection of bits is your very own Pong game maker kit.
Remember Pong? Two paddles and a square ball? Not exactly Skyrim, but a heck of a lot more fun on a Friday with friends.
Follow the instructions to build a classic console, with an array of 120 gloriously low-tech LEDs as your screen. About as portable as a Motorola DynaTAC 8000X (Google it, kids) it’s hardly lightweight, but then neither is the sense of history at your fingertips as you twiddle your paddle up and down and defend your goal.
A must for budding electronics whizzes and nostalgia junkies alike, this DIY handheld arcade game is like stepping back in time, without the Huey Lewis.
