Sarnoff Collection Presents New Exhibition on RCA’s Video Games

Sarnoff Collection Presents New Exhibition on RCA’s Video Games

From November 4, 2015 through May 20, 2016, TCNJ’s Sarnoff Collection will present a new exhibition Computer Fun for the Whole Family: Video Games and The Sarnoff Collection. In the late 1960s, RCA recognized the entertainment potential of computers and was among the first firms to produce electronic gaming systems aimed at the general public. Computer Fun for the Whole Family uses artifacts from the Sarnoff Collection to illustrate how early hobbyist computers eventually gave way to cartridge-based video games. It also shows how engineers at RCA’s Princeton research center laid the foundation for modern interactive games and consumer virtual reality systems like the Oculus Rift. Visitors to Computer Fun for the Whole Family will have the chance to examine vintage RCA computer systems and will also be able to try out a few classic video games for themselves.
