Dave Needle, Pioneer of the Amiga 1000 passed away on Saturday

Dave Needle, important in the completion of the Lorraine project, which resulted in the Amiga 1000, passed away on Saturday, February 20. Needle was one of the main engineers behind the Amiga’s custom chips, and later on went on to co-create the Atari Lynx – the first handheld system to feature a color LCD screen – in the late 80s. Dave Needle was also the co-inventor of the 3DO Interactive Multiplayer home console, a short-lived but cutting edge system.
