This Galaxy game might have been the first commercial game machine.
It was built and installed at the Stanford Tresidder student union in
1971 by Bill Pitts and Hugh Tuck.
A single PDP-11 was used to drive the two vector displays, each allowing 2
players to compete.
It has now been moved to the
Visible Storage in the Computer History Museum in
Mountain View, CA.
(More Galaxy Information). We have also a picture of the predecessor game at SAIL, running on the PDP-6 and the I3 display.
