A Pong table managed to wow CES 2019

That’s not the kind of headline one expects to write going into the week. But here we are. Universal Space’s analog Pong table is a mindblower in a whole unexpected way. The tabletop machine goes more retro than retro by bring pong into the real world through the magic of magnets (some day, perhaps, we’ll discover how they work). There’s a square “ball” and a pair of rectangular paddles on either side, moved back and forth by spinning a wheel. Like the classic game, spinning faster and hitti...

This crowdfunded Pong table might be the coolest thing at CES

There’s lots to love at CES each year, but there’s always that one product that’s just to cool to ignore. This year, it’s a $3,000 table that plays Pong. No, really. While it may seem an underwhelming addition to a trade show known to showcase the latest and greatest, this digital representation of the 1972 classic, Pong, has been a hit with anyone who’s taken the time to try it out. It originally started as a Kickstarter idea, in 2017. The crowdfunding campaign netted the company a cool $335,00...

The Tricky Business Of Charging Friends For Professional Help

Photographer and artist Areli Arellano was once approached by a friend trying to start a business. The friend asked if she’d be willing to help create the company’s identity design. Arellano sent over her rates, but the friend pushed back, asking if there was any way she could do it for free. “Her reasoning was that this business had no revenue yet, therefore it would be absurd to charge for a design,” Arellano recalled. “I wished her well on her new journey and left it at that. It might have b...

First Mover Brands Rely On More Than Timing

Nolan Bushnell knew he had a hit when he heard about the trouble at Andy Capp’s Tavern. The founder of Atari had created only one prototype machine of the company’s first video game, Pong, and it had stopped working after just two weeks. The problem was that the can for collecting coins was getting overstuffed. The bar’s owner said that on some mornings there was a line outside before the doors opened; people came just to play the game. These are the kinds of problems we all should have. In 1...
