Dave Nutting designed a powerful graphics processor to pair with a Zilog Z80 microprocessor in this 1977 home game console. Originally called the “Bally Home Library Computer,” it was refocused on gaming applications just in time to fall victim to the 1983 video game market crash. It was taken off the market in 1985.
