Who Built the First Video Game?


The first VIDEO GAME was built in 19`8 by physicist Willy Higinbotham at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, Long Island. It consisted of a tennis match played on a 5 inches circular video screen and each player had a box with a button and a knob. The button served the ball and the knob controlled its elevation. If you hit it into the net, it bounced back along the ground towards your end in a realistic manner. The apparatus was set up in the Laboratory’s gym, where long lines of visitors queued up to play. The following year Higinbotham built a version with a larger screen.
