Atari Bionics System. An entirely new product designed
for the medical field. The system was comprised of an
expandable base unit which would have various plug-in modules which would
perform a specific function such as check heart rate and blood pressure.
Other modules would perform other tasks. Hewlett
Packard makes medical equipment and many of their products have the same
design characteristics as those shown here in the Atari Bionics system.
modules would each plug into the base unit to perform specific functions.
Unit module design actually became a new game controller product.
The original design of the module was to measure resistance in the muscles
of a person. This concept became a new game controller called
the Mindlink System. A combination of headband and infrared
transceivers would allow a user to control the action on the screen.
One software product was called Bionic Breakthrough.
