In this weeks show we talk all about the almost forgotten Atari Cosmos. We talk about the people behind the system and we we explore the technology and concepts behind what could have been the 1st generation holographic gaming system. Just a reminder to drop by our official forums to discuss the Atari Cosmos.

The above art was done by Artist/Illustrator Derek. To see more of Derek’s work, drop by his website at Lunchbag Art. You can see more retro themed art that was done for the Retroist Podcast (including Derek’s) at The Art of the Retroist Podcast.

    The narrator for one of the Atari ads sounded like a subdued Jack Palance to me. I wonder if it was….

  2. This sounds pretty incredible and I’m disappointed that it never became a reality. As for the commercials, I really wish I could’ve played that Journey game on the 2600!
