Throwback To The First Video Game Ever


The October of 1958 saw a tremendous development when physicist William Higinbotham created the now-known as the first video game ever. It was a simple tennis game similar to the Pong from the 70’s and was a hit at the Brookhaven  National Laboratory Open House. It was titled as ‘Tennis-for-Two’ , which is a simulation of the game tennis. It came into existence before the much loved arcades and home video games and people waited in lines outside the national laboratory to try a hand at it.  It is also called the ‘forerunner of modern video games’.

The Making Of The First Video Game Ever

The game reached 9.5 billion sales in the year 2006-07 in the states, alone. It was played by two people in charge of separate controllers  connected to analog computers and an oscilloscope. Higinbotham utilized 4 operational amplifiers to generate motion in the ball while 6 of the remaining amplifiers in the computer sensed the hit on the net and then transferred control to player two. 

By the year 1959, improved versions of the same game were introduced with a larger screen and better features. It was a truly remarkable invention for the now prospering gaming industry and paved the path for so much more!
