For a forty-year-old company that remains synonymous with video games, Atari has experimented with an awful lot of other businesses. In its early years, it made pinball machines, jukeboxes, video phones, digital photo booths, music-visualization boxes for your hi-fi, and more. Benj Edwards, who knows more about this stuff than anyone, has compiled a look at Atari Oddities–including the aforementioned and others, and some strange games, too. (If you remember Puppy Pong, I’m impressed.)

    The company is not 40 years old, the brand is. The original company was split up in '84.

    Atari is the pioneer of game consoles. It's so old that I can't even remember how old I am when I last played it. I just remember hanging out on the couch with my parents and grandmother rocking Space Battle. I'm surprised it's still around.
