Part 2 of 2...In 1961, Digital Equipment Corporation gave MIT a PDP-1 computer and the games began. From discussions about "interesting displays" to new lessons in interactive programming, MIT's Kludge Room became the birthplace of Spacewar! MIT's first computer game. On February 10th, 2012 at The MIT Museum there was a panel discussion on Spacewar! and the PDP-1 computer produced by the GAMBIT Game Lab featuring a member of "Spacewar!'s" original creative team, Martin "Shag" Graetz and members of the PDP-1 Restoration Project; Eric Smith and Mike Cheponis. The panel was moderated by GAMBIT's U.S. Executive Director, Philip Tan.
