This is the first episode of Through The Techades, a series of videos based on technology from the past! This week we’re having a look at the Atari 8 bit computer, which kickstarted Atari’s involvement home computing.


    The model featured in this video is the Atari 600XL, which was part of the second generation of the 8-bit family. In this video, we take a look at some of the games available for the machine and attempt to load a game through an Atari cassette deck.
