Submission + - Invent 21st Century Pong and win $50,000 (i-programmer.info)

mikejuk writes: Atari is offering up to $100,000 in a contest for a new version of Pong for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, the classic game that launched video games 40 years ago. The judges for the contest include Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari, who came up with the original idea for Pong.
So the question is what does a 21st century pong look like? How does it play? And what role has touch got in this simplest of games?
