The Bentley Compu-Vision was apparently marketed in 1983, which would makes it one of the last pong systems ever produced !
The controllers are on wires, so you can remove them from the base and relax; you don't have to stay hunkered over the game unit.
The first switch is a game selector which has the choices "Practice, Squash, Soccer, Tennis". The next button is Game Reset. The next is Ball Angle, whith the choices Steep and Slight. Then Ball Speed with Fast and Slow. Next is Player Size with Small and Large, and the last switch is the power switch. There is no built in speaker--the sound comes through the TV speaker. the unit is 6.5 inches wide, 9.75 inches long, and 1.75 inches tall. It weighs about 1 pound.
Inside of the unit, there are 3 adjustment knobs. one that controls picture size, horizontal placement, and brightness all at once. The second controls the volume, and the third is contrast
We need more info about this pong ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system,
please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
I bought this system at a yard sale sometime in the late 80''s. There was a major problem. In any game, the ball would come out, hit the player "paddle" on the right, and then start bouncing from top to bottom of screen in a straight line, with no way to ever hit it again. To this day I still wonder what kind of defect could cause this to happen.

Hello there, I would like to express my feelings for the meat on my carpet. Sometimes it cries, and it makes me feel sad. Goodbye, see you next year.
