Elektor's First Video Game Console

Restart after 42 years

Elektor's First Video Game Console
The construction of Elektor's first video game console using General Instruments integrated circuit type AY-3-8500 appeared in the Summer Circuits 1977 edition. With just a handful of external components and a professional circuit board from the Elektor PCB Service, replicating the project at home was easy — and success almost guaranteed. The AY-3-8500 was not the dawn of video games though, rather the culmination of more than ten years of development. Follow me in the footsteps of the amazing history of video games and experience the recommissioning of an original Elektor circuit after 42 years!
