This stylish Pong coffee table is edging ever closer to commercial reality

I posted about this a while back. And now, with the Kickstarter coming to an end in a few days (less than two thousand dollars short of the target $250,000), it’s the perfect time for an update. Thankfully, it looks like they’re almost certain to get the money required in order to take the table into full production, which is great news. But, if you want to support the project, there’s no better time than now. I’ve added the Kickstarter video below, just so you can check it out quickly while you’re here:

Videos can’t really do it full justice but it’s a lot of fun actually playing it inside VR. The simple flat-shaded polygons are a great look; it’s a bit like playing an RTS game if it were set in the Tron universe. And it’s also an excellent example of a game in VR that isn’t your typical first person experience and that caused me absolutely no motion sickness at all. I played it for a few hours and it was completely comfortable for the entire duration.
