Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have recreated “Tennis for Two” a historic video game using an oscilloscope originally created in 1958 by physicist William Higinbotham at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. It was one of the first electronic games to use a graphical display and predated Pong by 14 years. Here’s their write-up on the project.
