Vector-based Pong on an Oscilloscope

Posted December 19, 2011 by Chris

“For my MCU Project Laboratory final project, I created a two-player Pong game on an analog o-scope. Two potentiometer knobs functioned as the controllers and A/D converters translated the voltage set by the controllers into coordinate information for the paddles. The XY mode of o-scope enabled two voltage inputs to direct the CRT’s electron gun around the display to generate 2D graphics.”
