Atari 2600 Transformed Into Electronic Drink Racer and Timer

Atari 2600

If you have a Atari 2600 that you would like to breathe a life into, you may be interested in a new Arduino project which will transform your Atari 2600 into an electronic drink racer and timer.

The project consists of a Atari 2600 fitted with an Arduino Mega microcontoller together with 2 x 4-digit 7-segment displays, some LEDs, wires, and other miscellaneous parts.

A pair of custom coasters were constructed as drink plates using force-sensitive resistors, soft springs, rubber actuators, and three layers of CNC-cut materials: acrylic bottom plate, brushed aluminium center, and acrylic spacer, explains at the Arduino blog.
