The founder of Atari, Nolan Bushnell, is going to release NFTs that are based on classic arcade machines through MakersPlace. These NFTs will allow their owners to get a 3D view of the arcade machine through augmented reality.

Atari is a legendary video game company. Bushnell, its founder, helped bring the popular arcade gaming to the public. With the quest of NFTs, he further plans to get some of those early machines into the public homes as digital, augmented reality collectibles.

Today, the NFT marketplace MakersPlace and Bushnell announced a set of Ethereum-based collectibles known as The Arcade OG Series. A token that is used to provide the ownership of a verified digital item is known as an NFT token. Here, the video displaying a 3D rendering of an Atari "Pong" or Bushnell's Atari precursor, Syzygy "Computer Space" arcade game cabinet is an NFT.

Every collectible is more than a simple video clip or an NFT. It is equipped with an augmented reality experience that allows you to view the real-world 3D rendering of the arcade cabinet. Owners can drop the digital cabinet into place and walk around it. They will be able to view it up-close from all angles.

Augmented reality technology uses your smartphone cameras and sensors to display real-world surroundings with digital elements on top. Some mobile apps have been created using this technology to design interactive games and provide real-world shopping experiences. NFTmarketplace Veve—which is working with brands like Marvel and Star Trek— offers 3D "digital statues" that can be used to view on a screen set against the real-world backdrop.

The MarkersPlace had tweeted, "Introducing, The Arcade OG Series! The 'godfather of video games' @NolanBushnell, founder of Atari, has teamed up with VFX specialist @zaiortiz_ to reinvent the first two Bushnell games ever made."
