Hackvision is a hackable retro-gaming system based on Arduino technology.  Connects directly to your TV with RCA cables.  No Arduino is required but you can write and upload your own games onto the ATmega328 chip using the Arduino IDE and a USB to serial cable or adapter.  It comes preloaded with two games (Space Invaders and Pong clones).  A button controller is built right on the PCB and you can add a Wii nunchuk controller, paddle controllers, or design any controller you like!

See the official site for all the other details and lots of documentation:  http://nootropicdesign.com/hackvision

Available as a kit or fully assembled/tested in the nootropic design store: http://nootropicdesign.com/store/index.php?main_page=products_all

This was a lot of work, but I think it turned out great!

Brilliant, I even got a mention!

I will try to get my 'jedi' pong pics uploaded soon as an example of alternative controllers. ;)

It really is very addictive! Especially playing pong aginst yourself  ;D
