Atari engineering notebook by Dan Kramer from 1980 #Atari @InternetArchive @KaySavetz
Kay Savetz has scanned Dan Kramer’s Atari engineering notebook from October 1980 to February 1982.
Some of the topics covered in the notebook:
Atari Remote Control VCS, Atari 2700, Atari Cosmos holographic handheld game, Atari 2800 (Japanese Atari 2600), Atari 5200, Atari 2900, and so many trackball controllers. This is an amazing snapshot of computing history.
You can see Dan talk about his work at Atari in the video below.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
