Hi All -

Just found this site and looks great!
I'm an inventor/designer of toys with a major company here is the USA.

Back in the late 70's, I worked for an independent toy design company and came up with the idea and design for a handheld game called TC7 Air Traffic Control. It was ultimately licensed to Bandai who produced it.

I bought one back several years ago as I didn't keep one of my own designs for myself when it was produced.

Best to all -
Ken

Neat - I got one myself off eBay a few years ago. It's an interesting and unusual concept, not being based in sports, space, or other common themes.

Well, I've always been interested in flight, and wasn't a big sports fan so I played around with an early Radio Shack TRS-80 computer and plugged into the printer port and started lighting up LED's. When I brought the computer to work, my boss was interested in what it could do, so I started working on my air traffic controller idea. It grew and we made a prototype and licensed the idea to Bandai. I then worked with them and Texas Instruments to develop the production chip.
