Minipong: Micro Pong Wall Installation

Tiny Guerilla Video Game Installation: A minimal ball paddle video game that uses a sewing pinhead for a joystick (move paddle left and right). The screen is the size of a penny. Theoretically, this tiny videogame would be installed into a wall in a public space - preferably a wall that people must stare at a lot. Subway station waiting benches have wooden arm rests that are perfect for this. In these pictures, you see the presentation prototype. it is important to design this system so that it can be installed into a wall in 30 seconds with only maybe a pocket drill and glue. The electronics can be designed so that the entire thing can be poked through a fresh hole in the wall without having to open the wall up. This prototype can be reprogrammed with a serial cable to provide other interactive or non-interactive content. The system can potentially be battery powered, plugged in, and solar powered depending on context. It would be great to see one wall with 50 tiny video games all lined up in a row.
