Geocache Description:

You are looking for a nano in a host about the size of a brick.

Breakout was a 1976 arcade game developed by Atari. In the game, a layer of bricks lined the top third of the screen. A ball traveled across the screen, bouncing off the top and side walls of the screen. When a brick was hit, the ball bounced away and the brick was destroyed. The player lost a turn when the ball touched the bottom of the screen. To prevent this from happening, the player had a movable paddle to bounce the ball upward, keeping it in play. The arcade cabinet used a black and white monitor with strips of colored cellophane placed over it so that the bricks appeared to be in color.

Breakout was conceptualized by Nolan Bushnell and Steve Bristow but the prototype was built by a young Atari employee, Steve Jobs, working with a friend and Hewlett-Packard employee, Steve Wozniak.

Jobs and Wozniak would later go on to start their own company.
