Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: 2016 Week 9

My son-in-law, Ethan, has this ‘Space Invaders’ alien craft dangling from the mirror in his Subaru! Many times one might see fuzzy dice, air fresheners, dream catchers or some other similar items hanging from the car’s mirror. But this is the only time I remember seeing this icon from one of the original computer games.

Tomohiro Nishikado created and released Space Invaders in Japan in 1978. The Midway division of Bally later obtained licensing rights to distribute the game in the United States. This game stands as one of the first to usher in the golden age of video arcade games.
