Don’t recall seeing an Apple II in WarGames? Well, true, you didn’t. However, the countdown display on NORAD’s War Operation Plan Response system (WOPR), which itself was a fictional computer built mainly out of plywood, was powered by an Apple II. Mike Fink, the Special Effects Supervisor for the movie, sat inside the WOPR and generated the display using an Apple II connected to an early (fluorescent) flat-panel screen. The Apple II, of course, first came out in 1977 and became one of the most successful personal computers ever manufactured, with more than 5 million units sold over the life of the series between 1977 and 1993.
