When I saw this amazing 1D-Pong-Game
at Hack-A-Day, I thought "What a great idea - I want to make one". In fact it is a good projects for using microcontrollers, but I also think it is a great project for using logic ICs. I am fascinated by the simplicity of these ICs, and I was wondering if I could make a 1D-Pong-Game without
Here it is: MonoPong involves a CMOS NAND Gate (4011), a 4510 up/down decade counter, 4028 BCD to decimal decoder chip and as an oscillator an NE555 in astable mode.The Game
is a 1D-version of the famous PONG game. The "ball" moves from left to right. The player has to push the button at the right moment to strike it back. If he misses the "ball" the other player wins one point.
