Computer plays Pong against another computer: the beginning of a dark future


7:24 AM on 06.16.2007




Blogging programmer, Ashish Derhgawen, has presented us a slice of our most horrific future, where Pong playing super robots will enslave the world with paddles forged from the very reasoning of sin. Well, not really, but what he has done is set up two computers to play a Pong clone against one another, using a webcam to imbue one of the machines with cycloptic powers.

Inspired by a computer that can play on a PSP while using a webcam to view the on-screen shenanigans, Ashish hooked up two machines, as per the video above, then set them upon each other in gladiatorial combat, that each warrior may compete for valor and their master's favor. That, or they'll just play for hours and hours with no winner ever becoming clear. Stupid boring computers. Neat little video, though.

Free 'Goat MMO Simulator' update coming Thursday

Coffee Stain Studios hasn't stopped supporting its wonky physics sandbox game Goat Simulator, thank goodness. The mobile version didn't entice me, but this fantasy-themed Goat MMO Simulator expansion is exactly the type of w...more

Sonic Boom can be hilarious without game-breaking bugs

Used to be Sonic games would at least let you stand in shin-high, Interstellar water. I stood in a lot of low water tending to my chao homies in their gardens (Dark Garden for life). This series was so much be...more
