totaly awsome project

Post by MrDEB » Tue Apr 05, 2011 10:45 pm

too bad you couldn't do the leds in smd. Perhaps copper tape?
Wonder what the spacing is on a peg board?
IMPORTANT ??? On your DIPTRACE schematic, how do you get rid of the white boundary lines around a schematic unless its a paid version which I assume it is seeing how you have more that 300 connections.
Wonder how expensive it would be to use LED Matrix displays? $$$$
using RGB LEDs? or even bi-color.
Use a different colored LED for each players paddle.
An idea that slamed into my head!! combine this super pong table w/ tetris
SUPER TETRIS TABLE
now that would be way off the charts.

Thanks!

I have found a much better way of making the display - and that is to not make it at all, just buy it!

You can get a 16x32 pixel RED LED display for $10 each here: (postage is a little expensive though. two boards + postage = $57)

You are thinking right up my alley with tetris. I already have though about an RGB version which would be an all in one game table. You could play super pong + mario bros + other games aswell - all in 3-bit color!

I have found that you only need one connected.

Some people say you should have both connected but I have never run into any problems with only one. I guess it could increase the current capability, but I am not using the microcontroller to drive any high current components directly (like LED's)
