One of my earliest computer "game" memories, was at the Hitachi exhibit
from the 1964 New York Worlds Fair.
I remember a small single capsule that had a CRT display that gave a
simulation of a rocket launch.? The display showed a single point and
the axis on either side were labeled, probably altitude and speed.? I
dimly recall the controls as simple buttons. I've only found a few bits
of documentation on the web - http://nywf64.com/japan10.shtml
is listed as an Analog Computer and Capcel.??? When I went back in 1965,
the capsule was still there, but non-functional.
If anyone has info or recollections about the exhibit I'd be interested
and appreciative of in anything you might be willing to share.
