Racing the Beam

Created: 2021

Another edutainment website created for a class, this one covers the history of the Atari 2600 one of the most iconic retro game consoles to ever be released. It used photos and retro motifs to tell how the 2600 drew the screen as the TV’s cathode beam raced across each row on the TVs screen to get around the extreme cost of RAM in the 70s. This was a fun project.
