Pong clock on Raspberry Pi + 1.8″ TFT

There was a blog post on http://raspberrypi.org couple days ago about a pong clock, these seem to be quite popular these days. A simple search on hack-a-day shows dozens of such projects, so the idea is not new. Still fun to implement 🙂 I adapted the code by Don Clark to run on my 1.8″ TFT display for Raspberry Pi. The idea is simple. A pong game is being played on the display and the score tends to show the current time (one or other side loses until the hour and minutes match the current time):
