Learn to Brave New Worlds with your Atari Computer

When I was a kid I really wanted a space helmet like the one in this ad. It got so fad that I would try and stick my oversize noggin in any clear sphere I could find. I can only imagine if I had managed to get one on, what a hassle it would have been to get it off.

    Great designs on the Atari computers.

    I’d also like to get one for my ongoing homemade spaceship project.

    Would be neat if antennae’d fishbowls were an actual peripheral needed to play space simulation games.

  2. @Atari Adventure Square Take it from me friend, if you can’t get your hands on one of those swell fishbowls, a Lazer Tag helmets will indeed help you with your space simulation gamers. :)
