Scotty is the only red shirt who didn't get killed in the first 5 minutes. ;)

Sorry to nitpick, but there are misnomers in the phrasing that spoil the trivia. Nobody "wrote" breakout because it was a circuit, not code.

The game concept was devised by Steve Bristow and Nolan Bushnell, but Steve Jobs built the first prototype. He was offered a bonus to reduce the number of chips, so he consulted Steve Wozniak to design a second circuit that was so highly optimized that Atari rejected it as impractical. A third c
ircuit was used for production.

So "who was the creator" is a bit too narrow for a simple answer.

Instructions

The model was printed out on my Cupcake 3D printer with "natural" ABS plastic and painted using Krylon Fusion beige paint. I then made several stickers from various images of the Apple II included as an image.

The first two STL files have an open computer and the top to go on it. The third STL file has a solid computer tipped sideways, that gave me a better finish.

It measures about 1.5 inches wide and 2 inches deep.

Ok, Related Trivia Question...
Who originally wrote Breakout?
First draft.
They threw away his code and didn't use it.
But who was the creator?

Thank you so much for uploading this! Now I can relive my childhood. I'll have to find some wizardry screenshots to put on a mini monitor!

Would green ABS work as a green screen? ;-)
