Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

Ingersoll R1800 Console

Nicely shaped Pong Console from 1977, it has the usual Tennis, Football, Squash and Practice, but adds the more unusual Hockey.

Controls include a manual serve button, game reset, and then switches for auto or manual serve, angle, ball speed, bat size, and on and off switch.

The two rotary controllers can be used clipped to the console, or can be held in the hand attached by a wire, which is very hard to get back in again.

Manufacturer: Ingersoll
Date: 1977

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH48953. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
