The Atari Cosmos was an unreleased product by Atari Inc. for the handheld/tabletop electronic game system market that uses holography to improve the display. It is similar to other small electronic games of the era that used a simple LED-based display, but superimposes a two-layer holographic image over the LEDs for effect. Two small lights lite up one or both of the holographic images depending on the game state. The system was never released, and is now a coveted collector’s item.
Only five Cosmos units are known to exist today, three are empty mockup shells and the other two units are fully functional. One empty shell and one fully functional unit are owned by the Atari History Museum, while the other functioning unit is owned by a former Atari Inc. employee.
