Monski Pong

This project comes from Tom Igoe’s book Making Things Talk. It’s a great example of setting up serial communication between the Arduino and Processing environments. You’ll build an old school Pong game using variable resistors as the controllers.

Materials you’ll need:

  • Arduino Duemilanove
  • 2 variable resistor sensors (ie. force and flex)
  • 4 x 10K ohm resistor (brown, black, orange)
  • 2 x Push Button

    Arduino Sketch
    You’ll need to get your hands on the book for this one. Check your local library.
