Amiga in the Arcade

Although the Amiga custom chipset is outdated there was a time when it was considered cutting edge. As a result several businesses developed hardware that would take the Amiga out of the home and into the arcade. Early uses, such as the Up Scope and Riverboat Queen focussed upon simplistic 2D graphics, while the Virtuality machines used the hardware to produce some of the first examples of consumer-ready virtual reality interfaces. In 1996 a Escom subsidiary released an Amiga-compatible VR helmet that replicated the effect of these early machines on the standard Amiga.
