Milton Bradley Microvision Electronic Programmable Game System

(Milton Bradley - 1979)
Milton Bradley Microvision Electronic Handheld Game System
The Milton Bradley Microvision programmable game system was an absolute technological marvel back in 1979! It was designed by Jay Smith, who went on to design the legendary Vectrex arcade.
The Microvision was the first handheld device with interchangeable game cartridges... how cool is that? The unit had a small 16x16 monochrome LCD screen with a paddle wheel controller.
What made the Microvision even more unique was that each game cartridge had it's own CPU and keypad, off-loading any processor or memory needs from the base unit.
I had saved up for a long time to be able to purchase mine back then, but once I finally had it, I was the envy of all of the kids in the neighborhood. Strutting around with a game system with no cords, and if the stars aligned just right, I could get almost an entire hour out of the 9v battery.
I would charge the other kids in the neighborhood to play the game unless they had their own 9 volt batteries to use (Hey! I was a kid, batteries were expensive). It was like something straight out of Star Trek! ...and I don't say that just because one of the game cartridges I owned for it was Star Trek Phaser Strike... well... maybe I did.
