Geocache Description:

You are looking for a micro inside a host that is normally used to hit table tennis balls. It is hidden just north of the Vero Beach Table Tennis Club (305 Acacia Road). Great area for dogs!

Released in 1972, Pong was one of the earliest arcade video games and was the first to reach mainstream popularity. Allan Alcorn created Pong as a training exercise assigned to him by Atari founder, Nolan Bushnell.

The idea was based on an electronic ping-pong game included in the Magnavox Odyssey, which later resulted in a lawsuit against Atari. Pong quickly became a success and led to the start of the video game industry.

During the 1975 Christmas season, Atari released a home version of Pong exclusively through Sears retail stores and was a commercial success.

Pong has been referenced and parodied in multiple television shows and video games, and has been a part of many video game and cultural exhibitions. While campaigning in 2008, candidate Barack Obama was asked by Entertainment Weekly, "What's the last videogame you played?" to which he responded, "Pong. That gives you a sense of my age. I loved that game."
