Radio Shack TV Scoreboard
The TV Scoreboard was Radio Shack's entry into the Pong-type console
game market. It was quite similar to Atari's SuperPong console, but had a
number of improvements. Like the SuperPong, it had four games built-in,
though unlike the Atari, it had detachable paddle controllers and selectors
for ball speed and slice and it's 'start game' button was located on the
upper portion of the right hand controller. Like most Pong clones, it had
a built-in speaker for sound and ran off of 6 "C" cell batteries or an A/C
adapter, outputting video to a TV. When not in use, the cables for the
controllers fed into slots in the case and the controllers then sat on top.
The TV Scoreboard was produced in approximately 1976.
