Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Hologram Time Traveler

arcade game

1991

In 1971, Nutting Associates released Computer Space, the world's first coin-operated video arcade game. It was followed swiftly by games such as Atari's Pong and Breakout that began the video game revolution. In order to preserve and restore these and other significant electronic artifacts, Keith Feinstein founded the Electronics Conservancy. Over time, the Electronics Conservancy assembled a large group of the most famous and historically significant arcade games ever created, and exhibited them in the traveling exhibit, Videotopia. In 2009, the International Center for the History of Electronic Games at The Strong acquired 114 vintage video game arcade machines from the Videotopia collection. These machines include the popular Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Tetris, Pole Position, Pong and, of course, Computer Space.
