…Browser Pong works like magic?

Browser Pong

I have NO idea how it works, but it does, so you must go check out Browser Pong.

The game plays just like regular Pong, but instead of paddles, you move small browser windows around your screen to bounce another browser window back and forth. Each player’s paddle keeps their score, and you can even play against a friend for some multi-player action.

Just remember though, there is a keyboard shortcut to turn off the sound, because you’ll need it.

…Papercraft scientists and game consoles can be fun?

If you’ve been bitten by the papercraft bug, but can’t seem to find enough ways to feed it, then check out the Papercraft Scientists and Papercraft Game Consoles.

The Scientists feature Albert Einstein, Carl Sagan and Charles Darwin:

Papercraft Scientists

And the Game Consoles include the Commodore 64, the Atari 2600, and the Pong Arcade:

Foldskool Heroes

Each one can be made at home by printing out the pattern, cutting and folding the figure according to the instructions.

…You can play Asteroids on your wrist?

Asteroids Watch

Remember the Pong Watch that showed the time by automatically playing a game of Pong?

Well John Maushammer (the watch maker) is at it again, and this time he’s developed a watch that plays Asteroids with a flick, tilt and twist of the wrist.

In this video, you can see the second version of the Pong Watch, which includes a tilt sensor that allows you to control the game, and some buttons that allow you to change the mode, as well as a preview of the Asteroids Watch:

…Retro games have been sabotaged?

Retro Sabotage

Retro Sabotage takes classic arcade favorites and gives them a modern twist.

New games are updated each Thursday, and so far, Tetris, Pong, Pac Man and Space Invaders have already gone under the knife, so there’s plenty to play with.

…Tilt Pong gets loud?

Tilt Scream Pong

The Mac’s sudden motion sensor is designed to save your stuff in the off chance you try to see how far you can throw your laptop, but it’s also good for having a little fun. A great example of that is this game of Pong that has you tilting your computer to control the position, and making noise to control the size of your paddle. Looks like fun.
