Games "Unfortunately, many of the logic chips that make up Pong are no longer readily available. There are newer parts that will perform the same function but they have different pin connections. I started by re-drawing and adapting some the circuits to the available parts." Recreating Pong from scratch. In its original hardware form. Crazy cool.

When I was back in college, 1 particular grad student had his very own ICL 1904 built out of transistor boards working in a spare room. As each board failed he would wire up a TTL logic board replacement work alike.

Reminds me of http://www.mycpu.eu/ & http://members.iinet.net.au/~daveb/simplex/ringhome.html

Do you remember the title of the BBC show? (too many of them; /me is afraid of Wiki effect ;p )
