So we all think that games like Mario and Donkey Kong are old school. But have you ever though what was before them. When Mario first came out and we all thought it was top of the line technology old school meant something different. It meant Pong! Pong was the granddaddy of them all. Well check this system out… It’s like old school even for Pong. It’s a mechanical version of Pong with chains, strings, switches, and relays. Check out this site. I know a lot of the site is in German but it’s still really cool. Check out the videos to see it in action.
