The first video game in history turned out to be a derivative of the US government’s nuclear test. Scientists worried that farmers around the lab would oppose radiation problems.
Therefore, the scientists of the US government specially made a game called “Tennis for 2”, the first video game in history to gain the favor of the farmer, and then the farmers were conquered by the game, and sure enough, the game Can destroy the will of man.
More than a half-century ago, Brookhaven Lab nuclear physicist Willy Higinbotham sought to “liven up the place” with an experiment in entertainment. At BNL’s annual open day in 1958, Higinbotham created what is often credited as the world’s first video game. Hundreds waited in line for a chance to play “Tennis for Two,” an interactive game made from an analog computer, two chunky controllers, and an oscilloscope screen just five inches in diameter.
The visitors, some of the world’s first gamers, saw a two-dimensional, side view of a tennis court on the oscilloscope screen. They served and volleyed using controllers with buttons and rotating dials to control the angle of an invisible tennis racquet’s swing.
