Tektronix 4952
Late 1970s
This is the 4952 joystick that went with the 4050-series computer systems and cost $560 new back in the late seventies. A POINTER statement is used to activate the pointer on the computer, and the joystick would move it around. If any key was pressed, the POINTER statement would end, the X,Y values would be stored, and the key pressed would also be stored.
