John Maushammer’s Amazing Pong Watch

( via laughing squid )

Yesterday at Maker Day, Make Magazine writer/blogger and Maker Faire co-organizer Phillip Torrone introduced me to John Maushammer who showed me the really cool Pong Watch that he has created. John has been documenting his design and manufacturing process on his Pong Watch blog and he has made a great video showing the watch in action and how he created it.

I succeeded in compressing all the electronics for this watch in to a 10mm-thick case. The 96×64 OLED display runs continuously – unlike older LED watches, there is no need to press a button to see the time. Battery life is 25 hours, so recharging is done every night.

Here’s previous coverage of the Pong Watch from Make and Boing Boing.

John does not currently have any plans to produce and sell the watch, but who knows, maybe one day…
