Advertising and video games, magnets and polygons

Adland: 

This weeks guest on The Advertising Show is Geoff Keighley, videogame king and editor in chief of GameSlice.com, he'll share his video gaming wisdom on Saturday and the whole world can have a listen via the advertising shows archives. (Even works on a dial-up modem, I've tried)

Video game nerds who remember playing classics like Pong (which was 'born' the same year I was born, does that make me a classic too?) will love this fantastic toy; Cyberbniklas mechanical pong table movie. Yes that's right folks, mechanical. I want one!

Pongmechanik is an electromechanical conversion of the classical game Pong. And instead of more realistic graphics, it ever accurately to reproduces the original Pong. The user is hardly changed. However the game breaks open the Black box: What takes place in the computer, becomes again perceptible and comprehensible.
