Retro will never stop being cool. It’s in the very nature of nostalgia. How can we lose anything if we bring it back on modern terms? Such as was the recent case with Pong, when Daniel Perdomo and his two friends adapted the old-school pioneer of an arcade class by transforming it into something akin to a digital air hockey game.
PERDOMO: “This project started about two years ago. I had the idea and I was talking with a few friends and [decided] to take the challenge and see how far could we go, working at nights in the free time. Just for fun.We don’t have any electronics, product design, or manufacturing background. All we knew for this was thanks to the Internet [such as Google, Youtube, forums].”
Behold the inspiration and building process of new-world Pong in the video below.
