Luckily, on the last day of our San Francisco trip devoted to filming amazing interviews for the feature film, "W00t!: The Videogame Revolution", Matt and I had a chance to visit the The Museum of the City of San Francisco, The Musee Mecanique. Among the great stuff there was a pristine "<a href=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Race_(1976_game)>Death Race</a>" arcade machine from 1976, which was the first controversial videogame, supposedly inspired by the 1975 cult classic movie, "Death Race 2000". The object? Run as many "gremlins" down with your car before time runs out. The question is, are they "gremlins" or people? Regardless of the answer, hearing the screams as they're mowed down is surely memorable! Check out the casual photos and videos below:
