Brief Description

We made the classic Atari game "Pong".

Description

We used 30 LED's as our screen and they are lined up in 5 rows and 6 columns. For our Pong paddles we have two lit up LEDs controlled by potentiometers. The ball is just one LED bouncing around the screen. Everytime the ball hits the paddle or sides of the screen, it makes a beeping noise. If the player's paddle doesn't line up with the ball then one light lights up on the oppenent's side. They keep lighting up until it reaches 7 points. The player who scores 7 points first wins. Their row will light up to indicate victory.

Problems Encountered

Make noise when the ball hits the side.

Play music for the winning side.

Instead of using one-light paddles on either side, we changed the values so that the paddles light up two LEDs at one time n stuff. We also had to change the analog values so that instead of it using pins 0-5, it now uses 0-4 because we used val+1, making it light up the original pin and the next one in succession, and you can't light up pins 5 and 6 when there is no pin 6 n stuff.

The blog has not been updated since the end of break, but we still have been making progress... n stuff. We fit all the LEDs through the plywood board that were strung to wires to make them easier to attach to the breadboard. We also drilled holes on either side of the "screen" to insert the potentiometers as controllers. We used knobs from an old television's volume and channel controls to put on the knobs of the potentiometers to make them easier to twist. Henderson is currently working on attaching the LEDs into the new breadboard, while Ryan and Mike are polishing off the blogs and comments on the programming. We expect to have the wires fully attached and Pong completely working on the new playing board by the end of next week.

What we would like to do

Add different colored LEDs

Cut the frame better

Paint the board a different color

Add music for the winning team.
