VGA Pong on an Arduino without shields or extra ICs

Connecting Arduinos to VGA monitors is all the rage, these days, and Rob Cai's instructable shows us how to do it without special hardware.

Rob's program uses the recent VGAx library, that connects the Arduino to a VGA cable using nothing but 4 common resistors, and is capable of addressing 120 x 60 pixels (x 4 colors).

On the Instructable published earlier this week, the italian maker explains how to do it using an Arduino Uno or a Nano, both ATmega328-based. Full code of the game is available, of course.
