Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

Stay safe, stay at home! There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

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.
