PyPong clock update – it’s smaller and now keeps accurate time.

A friend gifted me a 5-inch HDMI screen, so I got in the mood to finish the pong clock I started last year. I’m using Don Clark’s pypong python script for it, and found out why the time would drift–(to keep costs down, probably) the Raspberry Pi doesn’t have an onboard timer! To keep accurate time the clock must have an internet connection via ethernet or in this case, wireless USB wlan adapter. I made the ball and paddles smaller and the numbers bigger so it’s more clock than game–the movement can be distracting up close. Next step is to make it autorun on a raspberry pi zero and then find a nice picture frame to display it in.
