Isn't this one cool ? You just have to softly touch the buttons and ....pffft... the contact is made, great ! All buttons are of this type and this give a real pleasure to use the console, really nice.
The system is from 1977 and uses the AY-3-8500 chip from General Instrument. It can play the 4 classic pong games.
The display is in black & white but the score is displayed on screen.
The sound comes out directly from the box. There's even a speaker hole designed in the middle of the case for the sound to come out. The only outputs are the RF plug to TV and the power-supply cord.
There are two models of this pong. One has an internal transo (9v) and the other not... No batteries are used. The paddles are quite small and only have knobs. They are hardwired to the console.
The design is really cool even if it seems a bit "home-made"...
