Radio Shack TV Scoreboard

For those real tech misfits who aren't interested in Atari Pong because its "too mainstream" I give you the Radio Shack Electronic TV Scoreboard!

The actual unit is pretty unique looking with it's detachable Left Player control and baby blue trim. 

Apparently, there was another version of the Radio Shack TV Scoreboard that came with a realistic looking light gun and some extra games. I found this scan on the net:
