Emulated Games (DEC PDP-1)
The DEC PDP-1, a small mainframe computer for real-time applications introduced in 1959 by the Digital Equipment Corporation, was one of the first commercially available machines to come with a visual display. In 1961, one of the first production models was donated by DEC to M.I.T., which became the first digital computer ever to run a video game. A fully restored PDP-1 is on display at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California (USA).

In 2016, I did my very own game for the DEC PDP-1, a simulation of the very first coin-operated video game, “Computer Space” by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney (1971). Computer Space was inspired by Spacewar! on a PDP computer (hence the name of my game), but features a time limited gaming experience for a single player.
