The DIY LED Pong clock is a digital clock like most, but it also displays a game of pong on it. The LED lights add some new technology to this retro gaming piece, combining both old-school and new-age technologies.

Unfortunately, the DIY LED Pong clock doesn't actually feature a playable Pong game. Regardless, the outlook of this timepiece still makes it an undeniably cool retro-themed clock.

Implications - The comeback of retro games has inspired many designers to integrate classics into new products. With downloadable emulators and smartphones allowing people to enjoy old-school gaming, outdated games have become very profitable. These productions often fill consumers with nostalgia which is always an effective selling point in order to bring back forgotten classics into modern times.
