The life-size computer games; your letters.
Remember When COMPUTER games aren't as new as people think. During the war in 1944, anti-aircraft units were taught how to fire Bofors guns using similar methods to today's video games - only everything was life-size.
A mock-up of a Bofors gun would be put in golf-ball shaped buildings called dome trainers. Films of enemy planes would be projected on the walls and ceiling and the gunner had to shoot them down. When fired, the gun produced orange flashes and explosions on the target - just like a video game. Derek Kent, Sandown, Isle of Wight ?Send your memories of times gone by to the address below
