While its not exactly the OCZ NIA
. The Pong-hat-duino is way to play pong using only the power of your mind. Well, your eyebrows anyway...
This is basically a modification of Tom Igoe's Monski Pong project from the excellent book Making Things Talk (O'Reilly)
. When I bought this book from the maker shed
, it came with an arduino and a protoshield (both of which you can see at attached by velcro to the top of the ball hat as well as two force sensitive resistors
. Unfortunately, the Monski pong in chapter two of MTT uses 2 flex sensor resistors to be embedded in the cuddly monkey (he is the Monski on the book's cover). So, I modified the circuit to use the FSRs instead, these are attached with velcro tape to the inside of the hat's band. The whole thing makes for a challenge as you play pong against yourself using your eyebrows.
