Trivia:
1) Block Buster plays like Atari's arcade game Breakout. Using the Microvision's paddle, a ball bounces around the screen while smashing bricks. When all the bricks are smashed, all the bricks come back.

2) Based presumably on the arcade game Block buster (1976)

3) Microvision display resolution 16x16 it's the smallest resolution for display ever.

4) A liquid-crystal display (LCD) is a flat-panel display or other electronic visual display that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals. Liquid crystals do not emit light directly. LCDs are available to display arbitrary images (as in a general-purpose computer display) or fixed images with low information content, which can be displayed or hidden, such as preset words, digits, and 7-segment displays as in a digital clock.
