ATARI PONG Clock by Sander Mulder

Game Life has posted the limited edition Atari Pong Clock a long time ago. To be exact, 2 years ago (Atari Pong Clock). Since then no on has listed this beaut and I’ve been on a look out personally.

Well what do you know… one pops up on ebay (link here), and being how rare this Pong Clock is I don’t doubt the value one bit. On top of is being incredibly rare, this one is BRAND NEW! Pretty impressive the seller didn’t open it. The urge must have been overwhelming!

It’s currently listed at $999. The seller just listed the Atari Pong Clock and there’s no bidders yet. I’m interested to see how this one will end.

Back Story

Sander Mulder is a designer of odd things. He even has his own design studio (Buro Vormkrijgers) where he makes all sorts of things from obscure chairs, to odd industrial looking lamps and even rustic tables. Well back in 2005 he was contracted by Atari to make 400 of these clocks, each signed by Sander himself.

The story of how everything unfolded is actually more interesting than one think and I urge you to read the full back story at the Pong Museum. It’s honestly a 3 minute read. On top of that, you can check out the official page at sandermulder.com.

Functionality

Clock: While this game of pong randomly plays, the so called players score the time. The left player scores the hours, and the right player scores the minutes. This unusual timepiece, makes an ideal conversation piece, and ideal for those Friday afternoon moments.

Gameplay: Take your Pong Clock and hold it in front of you like an oldschool handheld game. Then, holding the two buttons on the back simultaneously for 2 seconds with your right hand, your Pong Clock will switch to game mode. This allows you to play a game of Pong against the clock, while controlling the right paddle with the two buttons! Holding the two buttons on the back simultaneously for 2 seconds again, will put your Pong Clock back in clock mode.
